OUTSTANDING school cooks have been getting some well-deserved praise for their hard work in the borough's kitchens and canteens.

Awards were handed out at the council's annual catering services awards at the Town Hall.

The coveted awards for best catering team went to Sydney Russell in the secondary school category, and Dorothy Barley in the primary school division.

Best meals take-up went to cook, Sozen Osman of Warren Comprehensive, who got 30 per cent more children eating school meals.

School cooks are now expected to make meals healthy, run tuck shops, organise breakfast clubs, and even provide corporate hospitality.
