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. ‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌​
