Springfield School hot lunch trial 'a success'

A Jersey primary school, which has been trying out a new system to serve hot meals to its pupils, said it has had a great response so far.

None of Jersey's States run primary schools have a kitchen.

Springfield School has been offering two hot lunches a week to pupils as part of the trial.

Head teacher Ian George said the meals, which cost £3, have been very successful and hopes to expand the service in 2012.

The school serves pupils pasta or jacket potato on Wednesdays with a pudding option, and soup with bread and fruit salad on Fridays.

Mr George said: "We've got plans to keep it on throughout next year, it depends on the level of demand but what we've had over the past five or six weeks is increased demand.

"I am very optimistic that this will expand into next year."
