Year 7 – Guiliana Schettino – A wide range of baking skills

Year 8 – Andreaa Cristescu – I would devour this plate in one sitting

Year 9 – Benedict Courtney – Pastalicious!

Year 10 – Donya Hajiahmad – Demonstrated a wide variety of culinary expertise

Year 12 – Charli O’Connor – mmmmmm....

Message from Mr Knowles:

I have to say I was overwhelmed not only by the amount of entries but also by the variety and imagination behind them. I know it’s often said but it really was impossible to choose a winner but Mr Gooch has forced my hand so even if your name is not below, you are all winners!

If you didn’t win - please don’t hate me for not selecting your entry – your prize was in the eating!

Mr Knowles
