Grow It! Cook It! Eat It!

                                  Award winning


Students at Glen Innes Public School continue to learn about growing, harvesting and preparing fresh food by participating in our Kitchen Garden / Cooking program called "Grow it! Cook it! Eat it!"


The program involves children working in a productive garden at school, harvesting the food and then cooking it, before sitting down together to taste and enjoy what they have made.


Children learn best by getting involved and through positive examples. By teaching our children about growing, preparing and sharing healthy food, this program aims to develop life-long healthy eating habits.


The "Grow it! Cook it! Eat it!" program is a new and exciting initiative for our students and focuses on practical ways of getting children involved and developing healthy habits for life. It fits within the Health and Personal Development section of the syllabus as well as covering some aspects of the Science program.
