19. December 2016 · Comments Off on Christmas Lunch delight at Iona school! · Categories: Independent schools Nottingham, Steiner education

On Friday many Iona School children and staff tucked into a delicious freshly cooked Christmas lunch. On the menu this year was Maple Glazed Christmas Roast (dairy and nut free veggie loaf) served with gravy, mash and veg followed by Chocolate Orange sticky pudding with Snow custard. Everyone enjoyed it and there were lots of requests for seconds!

A huge thank you to our school cooks, Mic and Becky, for doing such a wonderful job and to the parents that came to lay out tables and chairs and decorate the hall to make it a special occasion for the children!
