Young Chef of the Year Award
Here are our brilliant students Kai and Vicky, year 9, at the final of Young Chef of the Year 2018. The final took place on Thursday 22nd February in the professional kitchens at Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College. Our students competed alongside many other schools with the judges noting that the standard was the highest this year since the competition’s introduction ten years ago.
This video, by Hammersmith & Fulham Borough Council explains briefly what the competition is all about:
Both Vicky and Kai conducted themselves with maturity and poise throughout what was a very stress-filled day, and represented Phoenix Academy impeccably.
Here they are with their trophies for Young Chef of the Year. They also received a Westfield voucher and Kai was presented with the further ‘Outstanding Recognition’ award, receiving a signed cookbook. Congratulations Vicky and Kai!
This competition was one of many activities run by the Academy, as part of the exceptional Raising Aspirations Enrichment programme.
