International Food E-mail Challenge 2012

Our school was a recipient of the International School Award in 2009 for three years and for the third time.  We were very proud to be the first Lincolnshire primary school ever to receive the award three times.  This challenge was evidence for our 2012-2015 application which will retain our status as a lead school not only within the county but within the whole East Midlands region.  For full information on what we did and how people took part scroll to the bottom of the page!

You may be wondering what happens if anyone gets to here.  Does the Headteacher panic?  Oh no!  The alphabet starts yet again.  There are a lot of minerals out there, you know..    

 

Thank you all for your support - it took me hours but was great fun and fascinating geography!

In a similar challenge in 2006 we received 59 messages from 31 countries
In 2009 this increased to 173 messages from 56 countries
Our aim was to see if this was beatable even with the addition of the need to include a recipe or meal information.  By the beginning of April we had shown that it was.

 

We requested e-mails from around the world.  This time we added a new dimension by asking that each e-mail:

  • Tells us where it is from (country and nearest town or city so we can add it to our map and webpage)
  • Tells us the name of the child (or children) or member of staff who requested the mail (they will get a different certificate for each mail)
  • Include information about a main meal from their country - these will be displayed around the map (if any mails also include a recipe we will add these to an ‘International Cook Book’ at the end of the year)

The challenge started on 18th October 2011 (in National Baking Week and during our own International Food Theme Week) and lasted until midnight on the last day of June 2012.  We set an original target of FIFTY emails from fifty different locations around the world.  This was beaten before the middle of November.
