Youngsters were given a pizza the action as they put their culinary and marketing skills to the test.

Year 9 pupils at Cramlington Learning Village had spent ten weeks planning, designing and creating their products and promotional campaigns for Domino’s.

And last week the top four groups of students were invited to the Domino’s branch at Manor Walks Shopping and Leisure in Cramlington to make their products and put their theories into practice.

The pupils were shown the ropes for the operations and procedures at the store, before creating their own pizza.

Bruno Coppola, Manor Walks’ centre manager, said: “We always strive to give something back to Cramlington locals.

“I’d like to thank all of the entrants who were involved and congratulate the overall winners of the project challenge as the choice was difficult as well as the team at Dominos for dedicating their time to such a worthwhile project.”

Michael Bacon, a business studies teacher of Business Studies at the school, said: “We always try and make the experience for our students as real as possible.

“The Year 9 students have relished the opportunity to try and win the competition and thoroughly enjoyed their first-hand experience in the restaurant.

“On behalf of the staff and students, I would personally like to thank Domino’s at Manor Walks for their support and partnership for this part of the project.”
