LEARNINGKitchen Garden & Sustainability
Hands on learning
Noble Park Primary School is running a kitchen garden program for the Middle Learning House students. It allows students to have a hands on experience in healthy eating through the growing, harvesting, preparing and sharing of fresh healthy food. Each homegroup participates in Kitchen Garden once a fortnight.
The students spend the morning working in the garden, learning to build and maintain a garden according to organic principles and growing and harvesting a wide variety of vegetables, fruits and herbs.After recess students work in the kitchen, preparing a range of delicious dishes from the seasonal produce they’ve grown. The finished meal is then arranged with pride and care on tables. It is a shared meal and a time for students, teachers, and volunteers to enjoy the fruits of their labour.
Buy some eggs today
A part of the Kitchen Garden Program is for our students to look after the school chickens! We have six chickens who are busy producing eggs for the community to purchase: $2.50 for 1/2 dozen of eggs.. Bargain!
Noble Park Primary School values and promotes the importance of looking after our environment through trying to limit our impact on the earth. We do this by aiming to have ‘nude food’ – which means we bring food to school in none to as little packaging as possible! We also work hard to think about our use of plastics, paper and food scraps by having separate bins to collect different waste items, which helps us to see first hand how we are helping the environment. Each fortnight a homeroom is awarded the ‘Golden Gnome’ for having the least amount of rubbish and the most ‘nude food’!
