Cheshire East schoolboy scoops prize in national competition
Cheshire East schoolboy, nine-year-old Gavin Port, has scooped second prize in a national competition held during British Sausage Week.
Gavin, a pupil at Weston Primary School, in Crewe, was among 30,000 youngsters who entered the wordsearch competition for Key Stage 2 pupils (seven to 11-year-olds).
As part of last November’s British Sausage Week, two competitions were held: a colouring competition for Key Stage 1 children (five to seven-year-olds) and the wordsearch for the older youngsters. In total, 70,000 pupils entered both competitions.
As well as completing the wordsearch, Gavin also had to say why he liked sausages. His entry was: “I think sausages are magic because they are full of protein, they give you big muscles, they are healthy and good for you - mouth-watering sausages.”
Head of Cheshire East School Meals Service, Sharon Alldread, presented Gavin with his certificate, his Sausage Week medal and a £50 prize. He also won a £100 microscope for his school.
Cabinet member with responsibility for children and family services, Councillor Paul Findlow said: “We are all very proud of Gavin and indeed all of the children who took part. It’s great that one of our children took second prize.
“At Cheshire East, we take nutrition very seriously and all of our meats, including sausages, which are among the many foods served daily to our schoolchildren, meet the national Quality Standard.”
