Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program
Victory is one of 800 Australian schools delivering the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden (SAKG) program, which promotes hands-on food education, flavour and fun. Our Year 3 and 4 students enjoy growing veggies, preparing seasonal recipes with their harvest and then tucking into the delicious, freshly-cooked fare at the end of the class. Parent helpers are a welcome and valued part of the SAKG classroom and the fun had by all is contagious.
Students are given all the skills, experiences and role modelling they need to learn to love their veggies and make healthier choices about what to cook and eat, for life. Pleasurable food education encourages critical thinking, teamwork, an understanding of cause and effect, and increased levels of observation.
