General Curriculum

Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program

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

The not-for-profit SAKG Foundation is growing a food revolution from the ground up. In 692 schools Australia-wide, around 77,000 children are enthusiastically 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 buds, 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.


Jump Jam


Jump Jam is a ‘Kidz Aerobix’ designed to challenge fundamental movement skills, increase fitness, develop student leadership & motivate students to move and enjoy exercise. Students at GNS participate in the weekly Jump Jam program.
