Kitchen Garden Program
Students are involved in growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing healthy food. Students enjoy participating in this program in our newly refurbished kitchen nutrition centre which allows them to prepare fresh and delicious dishes from produce that they have grown. Students feel a sense of pride when they are able to see and taste the finished products and take home the recipes to cook and share with their families.
Students have opportunities for student voice and choice on a range of school matters, through Class Meetings and Circle Time. Students share and celebrate learning and engage in collaborative problem-solving exercises. Team roles and group norms are negotiated with students to build a community of learners.
Year 7 students apply for student leadership roles—House Captains, Ambassadors and Educators to lead school events and promote school values. Reception to year 6 students liaise with student leaders to enact action plans to address school community issues through special projects and initiatives.
