Children and staff from Herne CE Infant and Nursery School love their lunch thanks to their amazing kitchen manager Mrs Nicky Chalk and her team. Mrs Chalk, who works for Chartwells Catering Company, has been awarded the double honour of 'Best Manager 2018' and 'Most Integrity 2018'. Mrs Chalk has been cooking up some delicious healthy dishes in the Herne Infant School kitchen for many years. Incredibly she knows each and every child and their food preferences. She greets them all with a smile and warm welcome while offering them the choice of lunch options. Mrs Chalk has worked with the school leaders to enable children to become as independent as possible during the lunch session. Children have many opportunities to make decisions and choices and especially enjoy using the salad and fruit bar. Mrs Chalk has been instrumental in ensuring that lunchtime at Herne is where children develop their social skills, manners and learn life skills such as using a knife and fork.
We are so proud of Mrs Chalk and thank her for her time and commitment to ensuring a positive lunchtime experience for all of our children.
