Restaurant and Garden
The school kitchen garden has been a part of the school for the past six years. During that time it has been a low maintenance, experimental garden with students tending to it at their own leisure and during lunch breaks.
During term three this year, the school decided to design and plan a more productive kitchen garden where the students take responsibility and look after the garden.
At this stage it is still a low cost garden which is being run with donations from community members. The school has applied for some grants to assist in the expansion of the garden but as it is very small scale, there has been no success thus far.
