Empowering students with life-long knowledge
The Kitchen Garden Program
We are very proud to offer a thriving Kitchen Garden program at SKiPPS. Behind the pencil fence at the back of the school lies our amazing garden, which allows students to plant, grow and harvest a wide range of produce. This produce is then taken to our student kitchen to create dishes that gives students new experiences with food from seed to the plate.
A hands-on learning experience
The school’s kitchen garden program empowers students with life-long knowledge of growing and enjoying healthy food.
The program develops our students hands-on experience in learning about:
- The growing and harvesting of fruit and vegetables
- The value of organic growing principals
- Water conservation
- Environmental sustainability
Of course, the most delicious lesson is enjoying and sharing the varied flavours of fresh produce that they have grown and prepared themselves.
