Earlier this year, we tasked schools to design a school packed lunch, which was both healthy and didn’t involve any single-use plastics.
The theme of the competition was “eat a rainbow”, and we wanted schools to be creative and colourful when designing the lunch – as well as keeping it healthy and plastic-free.
Our Healthy Schools Team and our Recycling Team – in partnership with the Caia Park Health Team and Wrexham Dietetic Department – have taken a look at the submissions, and presented pupils who put together the winning submissions with prizes and certificates.
The categories were split between Reception to Year 2, and Year 3 to Year 6.
Among the winners was Caitlin Griffiths, a Year 6 pupil at Barkers Lane Community School, Wrexham.
Caitlin is pictured below with Catherine Golightly, our Waste Strategy Officer, and Cllr David A Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport.
Also winning in the Year 3 to 6 category was Ysgol Bryn Tabor pupil Evie Jones, pictured below.
Cllr Bithell, said: “I was very pleased with the standard of entry across all schools – everyone who took part clearly put in a lot of effort to make their designs colourful and informative.
“As well as ensuring schools are healthy places, we also want to make sure that they can contribute to our recycling targets, and anything we can do to encourage pupils to be more aware of reusable and sustainable cutlery and packaging, the better.”
