Cooks at Venerable Edward Morgan School in Shotton have made it to the finals of the 2015 National Fish & Chip Awards, organised by Seafish.

The Great ‘Fish & Chip’ School Lunch Award is part of the 2015 National Fish & Chip Awards and celebrates the importance of offering children fresh and nutritious options as part of their school lunches.

Three finalists will be putting their ‘frying’ credentials to the test, Holy Trinity Primary School in Halifax, West Yorkshire; Cambridge Regional College in Cambridge, Cambridgeshire and Deeside’s Venerable Edward Morgan School.

To get to this stage of the competition, the finalists were judged across a variety of criteria including how they promote fish and chips in their schools through creative marketing and promotional flair.

Paul Williams, chief executive of Seafish, said:

“With concerns rising in the media over the eating habits of our children, there has never been a better time to celebrate everything great about our country’s school catering industry and the hard work they do to ensure our children consume a well-balanced diet.

“Seafood offers a wealth of nutrients essential for our wellbeing and helps to preserve a healthy heart and mind. This makes fish an ideal food source to help keep children’s concentration levels high throughout the school day.

The overall winners for all award categories will be announced at a grand awards ceremony at The Lancaster London Hotel on January 20th.
