Portlethen Primary had 147 participants making a rainbow salad wrap to be part of Jamie Oliver’s world record attempt at the world’s biggest cooking lesson.

An army of parents turned out to support and facilitate the event and Rev Flora Munro and Councillor Carl Nelson acted as official witnesses to the record.

The successful afternoon was organised by teachers Miss Laura Watson and Mrs Sandra McKechnie.

Over 9000 schools participated and, although the attempt has to be verified, it is believed that the record has been smashed.

The pupils also participated in a day of sessions with Andy McKechnie of Streetjam working with all classes throughout the day, jamming to different themes including that of the Commonwealth Games.

The event culminated in all classes performing to a very enthusiastic audience of parents and family.

Portlethen’s headteacher, Mrs Jennifer Garnes, introduced the workshops to the school to further enhance the children’s health and wellbeing experiences.
