The competition is hotting up across the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership.
Budding Mary Berrys and Paul Hollywoods from all seven ATLP schools in Erdington, Coleshill and Four Oaks, are being encouraged to put their baking skills to the test for charity – and win a tasty prize at the same time.
The ATLP’s 4,000 plus students from Brookvale, Hill West, Mere Green and Slade primaries and Arthur Terry, Coleshill and Stockland Green secondaries, are being given the opportunity to bake and decorate a cake for their school’s Macmillan Coffee Morning on 30 September.
Organised by the ATLP’s student leadership team – which features two representatives from each partnership school – the competition will see young cooks compete for a top prize of a bakery themed hamper.
All entries received by 30 September will be shortlisted and primary and secondary winners will be announced on 7 October.
Rebecca Goode, deputy headteacher of Stockland Green School and co-ordinator of the ATLP student leadership team, said: “We want children to be as creative and original as they like – the wackier the better!
“We have some incredibly gifted young people in our schools and this will bring together all of that talent for a great cause – to raise much needed funds for Macmillan and have some fun in the process. We’re looking forward to seeing some fantastic cakes, which we aim to sell off to students and staff to raise vital funds. Who knows? We may even have a future winner of Bake Off in our classrooms right now!”
