Students in Middle and Senior School at Burwood Heights primary School enjoy a fortnightly Homecrafts lesson in the school kitchen. The focus is on students cooking with seasonal produce sourced from the school garden. Students and adult volunteers collaboratively create a meal consisting of four dishes from simple recipes. At the conclusion of the lesson, everyone sits down at an attractively set table to enjoy a delicious, fresh meal and some interesting and friendly conversations.
By participating in this program, students learn a myriad of personal skills and extend their understandings of mathematics, literacy, geography, history and culture in a relaxed and supportive environment.
