Penrhyn Coch pupils shake up their wake up with OCW

On the 29th January FACE (Farming and Countryside Education) and Organic Centre Wales hosted an event to celebrate all things breakfast during Farmhouse Breakfast Week. Pupils from Penrhyn Coch Primary School visited the IBERS Gogerddan Campus, to enjoy a breakfast of porridge and granola before getting hands on with oats to learn about how their breakfast is produced.

“Connecting children with the food they eat is a very important area of work for both FACE and Organic Centre Wales and plays a crucial role towards developing healthy eating habits for the future. This event aimed to showcase a healthy breakfast and more importantly the efforts of researchers and farmers who are working very hard to produce food which is not only sustainable, but with long term health benefits as well.” Jane Powell OCW

Farmhouse Breakfast Week is organised by HGCA (Home Grown Cereals Authority) and takes place during 26 January – 1 February each year to raise awareness of the benefits of a healthy breakfast. With this is mind FACE and Organic Centre Wales organised a healthy breakfast, followed by a tour and informative demonstrations from leading researchers at IBERS.

Emyr Pugh-Evans, headmaster of Penrhyncoch Primary School said: “The pupils really enjoyed their visit, as well as learning a lot. They were excited for the rest of the day talking about what they had seen.”
