SCHOOL children took part in an international food festival this week, making and learning about foods from around the globe.
Pupils at Petersfield Primary School in Orwell used locally-grown ingredients to prepare foods from India, Africa, Italy, France and Japan as well as England.
The school is soon to be accredited as an international school by the British Council and one of the aims of the food festival was to make the children more aware of global diversity.
Head teacher Amanda Tuck said: "We were delighted to see and share the children's enthusiasm for this type of activity.
"It was great for us to walk over to Wimpole Home Farm and to dig up the potatoes we had planted there.
"Some had never dug potatoes before, and we were then able to prepare, cook, and eat this hidden food treasure together."

And Karen Gwynn, the school's international co-ordinator, said: "Although Petersfield is a rural English School, we like to think that we have a broader view of the diversity of world cultures, and food is a great way to celebrate the many differences and similarities between peoples.
