    Horndean Junior cooks are star bakers

    16 Nov. 2017

    Children at Horndean C of E Junior School have been showing off their skills in the kitchen by taking part in their own Bake Off.

    The school also hoped to show its Christian values by using the event to support the charity Children in Need.

    Their version coincided with the final of the TV version of The Great British Bake Off. Children were invited to bring in their baking masterpieces, which were then judged by the school’s cook Paula Alexander.

    The school’s Christian values are encapsulated by the acronym TLC, which stands for ‘Thinking with Thanksgiving, Learning with Love and Caring with Compassion’.

    The bakes were judged on the basis of taste, presentation and TLC theming. Parents were then invited to buy the culinary creations and proceeds were donated to Children in Need.

    Headteacher Miss Maria Ackland said “Our children came up with the fantastic idea of holding a TLC Bake Off and their culinary creations are amazing! We feel that our TLC values make our school special - they are our school’s distinctive ingredients.

    “I am impressed by their creativity and skill in designing and baking such wonderful cakes and biscuits. Well done to everyone who entered.”

    The winning designs included tasty and creative cakes decorated with symbols representative of the school’s Christian values. Each winner received a TLC apron and a cookery book.
