A school has won a £750 prize to build a garden worthy of growing food for the healthiest packed lunch in Essex. The Healthy Packed Lunch Plot Competition was open to all primary and special schools in Essex. It encouraged pupils to design a kitchen garden plot and create a recipe for a healthy packed lunch using its produce.
Marshall-Tufflex’s Sterling Profile 1 dado system has been used extensively in the expansion of Gascoigne Primary School, Barking, Essex, the largest primary school in the UK.
Victorian era Gascoigne Primary has expanded considerably over the years. The most recent development is an £11m project providing a new three-storey facility to accommodate 1,500 pupils complete with a rooftop playground looking out over the Thames Barrier and Barking Abbey.
