Last week, pupils in Primary 5A and 5B harvested cooking apples grown in school. Our new high school helper Joseph was great at getting the apples from high up.

Sadly, we can’t use all of the apples we have grown so instead, we contacted two of the local care homes, who were very happy to receive them. Doing our bit for the community!

Maureen, the activities co-ordinator at Manor Grange, thought she might get residents to have a go at peeling and chopping the apples before chef Joseph cooks them.

At Murrayside, chef Iain is planning to make apple crumble for residents this weekend, and says they are always interested to know where their food comes from, and will be very pleased it’s from the local school.
