 Well done, all! Under the guidance of Miss Pugsley, our group of budding entrepreneurs entered the Careers Wales Tasty Challenge Competition. The competition required our pupils to work as a team to design a healthy dish for a restaurant menu, made with as many sustainably sourced ingredients as possible. They created a presentation and presented in it to judges in the final at Parc Y Scarlets last month. Their idea for the presentation was potato and cheese pancakes which they named Cwtch pancakes, named for the warm and comforting feeling you get from eating them. The pancakes were made from potato and flour with mozzarella cheese in the middle, melting as it’s eaten. Pitching their product to a panel of judges from the catering and private business sector, all seven pupils presented in a calm and professional manner, selling their product extremely well. Their enthusiasm and belief in their product were noted. We most certainly have a high standard of entrepreneurial skills in the year group. What a great skill! Congratulations to you all – we are looking forward to sampling your product!
