The plan for a University/Samworth linkup was announced in July 2006 but now a tasty new video has just been produced to sell the idea to university staff and parents alike.
The University of Nottingham, ever keen to show off it's community sucking credentials, cannot contain itself with the possibility of resurrecting a 'failing' school. Plus co-bidder David Samworth already has his finger in one City Academy pie in alliance with the Diocese of Leicester and clearly has eyes on a bigger slice.
University big-wigs like Di Birch, and experts from the School of Education and the Medical School no less, talk of a new environment where learning, health are at last available to a deprived area of Notttingham.
We eagerly await the headlines:
"Nottingham University boffins show improved brainpower thanks to food that children like to eat!"
Will this be omega-3 enhanced Ginsters served at morning break? No more worries about compliance in this clinical trial - it will be compulsory, and good for you! And the sample size will surely be big enough to convince the most hardened of university statistics experts.
With their successes in supplying a local school with delicious veggie food, it's surely time for Veggies to put in a counter bid!
