Our thanks go to all the S6 Elementary Food pupils who donated baking to the Glasgow City Mission this Christmas.
Congratulations to all of the pupils who took part in this year’s Junior Masterchef Competition. The standard from all of the entrants this year was exceptional.

Second Prize Ruby (S1) who made grilled haloumi gyros and zesty orange cake
Third Prize Katy (S2) who made Thai noodle soup and mango magic
Our thanks also go to our judges Callum (S6), Laura (S3) and former pupil and chef at Ox and Finch Nicole Finnie who had the impossible task of choosing our winners.
Thank you also to the parents of all our entrants for their support.
Our thanks go to all of the pupils from S1 to S6 who helped prepare food and provide hospitality to all of the guests who attended the fantastic display of Nat 5, Higher and Advanced Higher Art and Design and Higher Photography. Thanks also to everyone who donated so generously to the Malawi appeal on the night.
