A group of enterprising first year pupils at Kirkland High School have come out on top with a winning quiche design.

First year pupils took part in the Stuart’s the Bakers Challenge, and had to design a quiche capable of being commercialised by the company.

The event - sponsored by RT Stuart - was organised to provide an opportunity for pupils to engage in an enterprise activity with plenty of willing quiche-makers!

With enthusiasm in no short supply among the S1 pupils it was Class 1KA that beat off the competition from three other teams to be awarded the winning trophy for their ‘Caledonian Quiche’.

This year’s judging panel included Ronnie Ross, headteacher; Keith Stuart, Stuarts; Michael Henderson, college tutor and Jenn Mann, Active Schools co-ordinator.

Mr Ross said: “The school has a long tradition of encouraging enterprise and enterprising behaviour. Under arrangements for Curriculum for Excellence, enterprise has an increasingly important place in our learning.

“The Stuart’s Challenge is a very successful and worthwhile activity for our pupils as it helps to develop the skills of leadership and team-working in a fun but challenging way. We are extremely grateful to Keith Stuart for his continued support and generosity as always with this enterprise challenge.”
