Through the Garden to Table programme at Dominion Road School learners are encouraged to get their hands dirty learning how to grow, harvest, prepare and share seasonal fresh food. The Garden to Table programme is an integral component of our Health, Maths and Science  Curriculum. 

 

With the help of volunteers and teachers, our Year 3 - 6 students are involved in all aspects of gardening and cooking. Our shared kai at the end of each class is always a highlight.

 

 Some of the skills we are developing;

  • Hands on and cooperative learning

  • Knowledge of seasonal produce and where food comes from

  • An appreciation of new tastes

  • Hygiene and safety

  • Knowledge to use standard garden and kitchen equipment

  • Life long cooking and gardening skills
