IT’s become something of a permanent fixture on the school calendar and one which is a big hit with both staff and pupils alike.
It’s the day they can all tuck into a hearty booked breakfast Sussex style and sample all the very best of what local producers have to offer.
This year was no exception and shortly before they broke up for their half term holiday the pupils of Bury Primary School gathered together to enjoy a Sussex farmhouse breakfast in style.
Tables were laid with red gingham cloths and fresh flowers and they chose from a variety of local produce including sausages and bacon from Scott Free Range, Storrington, eggs from Rookery Farm, apple juice from Charlie’s Farm Shop, Bury and croissants and fresh bread rolls from Waitrose, Storrington all prepared by a team of volunteer parents.
The children watched with great interest the skill needed to produce the perfect crepe.
Ann Bage, headteacher, said: “The children really look forward to the cooked breakfast each year. It is lovely to see them chatting together and eating well. We are very fortunate to have some great local farmers with quality produce. The children now have a greater understanding of where their food comes from and realise the importance of a good breakfast before a school day.”
