General Curriculum

Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program

GNS was one of the few schools in Western Australia to be chosen to participate in the Stephaie Alexader Kitchen Garden Program (SAKG).

The not-for-profit SADG Foundation is growing a food revolution from the ground up. In 692 schools Australia-wide, around 77,000 children are enthusiactically getting their hands dirty and learning how to grow harvest, prepare and share fresh, seasonal food.

The fundamental philosophy that underpins the SAKG program is that by setting good examples and engaging children’s curiosity, as well as their energy and their taste budgs, we can provide positive and memorable food experiences that will form the basis of positive lifelong eating habits.

GNS deliver weekly kitchen and garden classes to all students. There they learn skills that will last them a lifetime, and discover just how much fun it is to grow and cook their own seasonal vegetables and fruits.
