The Journey Begins!

We’re off! Our four years taking part in Fruitfull Schools has begun. Mr Lockton, the man who runs Fruitfull Schools, visited BBEC to present a year seven assembly. He gave us another way to look at what seemed like ‘just an apple’, and even offered twenty-four volunteers to taste the difference between three apple juices. Myself and GeeGee were chosen, and everyone would agree, all the apples are so unique. Year sevens were now stocked up with information about apples and Whittingham Orchards.

Fourty-eight lucky pupils were given the chance of a trip to Whittingham Orchards. Pupils who went said that it was interesting to learn more about the different apple trees and exciting to know that BBEC was one of the schools that had won the competition.

BBEC media club will keep updating the Fruitfull Schools blog.

NEW trees coming soon

Hopefully in the not-so distant future BBEC will be recieving apple trees to be planted around the school grounds. Pupils at school will be able to design orchards that they think will best suit the school grounds. The designs will then be judged at school and our winner will be sent off to be profesionally jugded. Also today (22nd October) it was our apple day, the national apple day was yesterday (21st October), so there were activities dotted around for example: apple bobbing; apple juicing and apple tasting. This is another thing we have to do to become a “Fruitfull school”!
