Red Cherry Restaurant
We have created a weekly restaurant in our community room at Cowie Primary School. P6 pupils set up the Red Cherry every Friday to serve a different class each week. Teachers are invited to join & everyone enjoys a tasty school dinner together. Pupils received training from Stirling Court Hotel staff, so they are experts at serving guests at the Red Cherry!
Our space is decorated with many of the food-education activities we have done over the past few years, including a session on the Healthier Scotland Cooking Bus, a visit from Quality Meat Scotland, our investigation into sugary drinks, and artwork of our favourite meals.
On 2 June we hosted a Food for Life information session for staff from other Stirling schools. P6 pupils shared their experiences with the Red Cherry and some of the skills they have learned, including serving staff tasty treats and tea throughout the evening.
