Students design sandwich from home-grown produce

YARWUN State School students know how to make a healthy sandwich produced from their own backyard.

The school of only 52 children was the smallest of seven finalists at the Queensland Sandwich Designer of the Year competition.

Students voted on the ingredients and name of the sandwich.

They came up with the Sunny Chicken Deluxe Sandwich.

Tuckshop convenor Suzy McKenzie said although Yarwun didn't win, she was extremely proud of the children's efforts.

"It was fantastic that our little school was in the finals," she said.

"There were 500 kids at the other schools.

"The judges loved the fact the kids had a lot of input in it and how colourful it was."

The sandwich consisted of eggs from the school's chickens and vegetables from the school's hydroponic garden.

Year 4 student Katie Windsor rated the sandwich pretty highly.

"It tastes really good," she said. "Mrs McKenzie makes really good food."

The winning sandwich was a tuna wrap.
