A YOUNG Aberdeenshire pupil will have something special to include in her CV if she decides to go into advertising.

Foveran Primary 6 pupil Emma Kirk’s entry was selected to go on the packaging of The Store’s new ‘super sausages’ after an online competition held by the local company.

The family-run business created its Super Sausage as part of the national Farmhouse Breakfast Week earlier this year - with a little help from its local primary school.

Farmhouse Breakfast Week is an annual campaign which helps to raise awareness of the importance of breakfast and the company hosted sessions for Foveran pupils, which included smoothie making, milling oats for porridge and sausage making.

The Super Sausage is made from local oats, pork and honey, all of which are considered super foods and full of nutrients.

The pupils were asked to design a label for the new product and The Store ran an online social media competition to find a winning label.

Emma’s design proved to be the favourite and her label is now included on the packaging.

Foveran head teacher, Gaye Stevenson, said: “The sessions that The Store held during the week really got the children thinking about what was on their plate and reiterated the importance of breakfast whilst supporting local produce.”
