Today we welcomed Nadiya Hussain, the 2015 Great British Bake Off Champion, to Parkfield. Nadiya came today because we had won Rochdale Council's competition where we had to get as many people as possible to 'pledge' to recycle. We came 1st out of all Rochdale schools - with over 1,400 pledges.
The day started with a special assembly where Nadiya presented awards to the top 10 'pledgers' from Rochdale schools. Children from Reception to Year 6 from schools across the borough had their opportunity to meet, greet and have a photo with Nadiya. We were also presented with a cheque for £1000 for coming first overall and the 'Eco Team' are going to decide what we spend our winnings on.
Year One, Six and members of the school Eco Team were then involved in special classes where Nadiya supported them with decorating cakes and biscuits.
Overall, the day was a fantastic experience and is something that the children at Parkfield will remember for many years to come.
Thanks to Rochdale Council and Nadiya for such a memorable day.
