Spring in the Kitchen Garden
After a very wet winter, the students are busy weeding and planting in preparation for some bountiful harvesting in coming months. The students enjoy watching the plants grow and using the harvested goods creatively in the kitchen to make some delicious and for some, new and challenging delights.
The whole school enjoys this project, with students and staff from throughout the school visiting the garden at different times to see what’s going on and certainly noticing and commenting on the aromas wafting from the kitchen following the regular cooking sessions.
So much shared and incidental learning happens in all aspects of school life, from learning about caring for our our environment and growing things, celebrating 100 days of Learning, being involved in team events like athletics and interschool winter sport and participating in whole school events such as Footy Day, Book Week, School Masses and the School Production.
Very little happens without broader learning opportunities taking place, students throughout the school are involved in learning about the location, lifestyle and animals of Madagascar this term in relation to our school production, Madagscar Junior.
