Stamford High School pupil Stephanie Fenn has won a national prize for her excellent GCSE Food and Nutrition work from The British Nutrition Foundation.
The Foundation’s annual award scheme recognises and rewards achievements made by students throughout the UK and the hard work of their teachers in the subject area of Food and Nutrition. Prizes were awarded for the highest mark at GCSE and A-Level for each exam board. Stephanie won the GCSE prize for OCR Home Economics- Food and Nutrition.
Stephanie, now in Year 12, and her Home Economics teacher – Tessa Bennie- were invited to the Foundation’s ‘Annual Day’ held at the Royal College of Physicians in London on the 15th November 2011. During the prize-giving ceremony Stephanie and Tessa were presented with framed certificates from the patron of The British Nutrition Foundation, HRH The Princess Royal, as well as a £50 prize for Stephanie and a £100 prize for the School. The day also included a lecture on “How much food does man require: New insights” from Jeya Henry- Professor of Human Nutrition at Oxford Brookes University.
Tessa Bennie commented “We are very proud of Stephanie’s achievement, which reflects all the hard work she has put in. We really enjoyed the annual awards day; it was a real privilege to be there as it was the most important day in the BNF calendar. The whole day was a celebration of the achievements of our talented young people.”
