last year, Happy Valley School was successful in
receiving a Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Grant of $60
The grant money will enable the school to
establish areas for a "teaching" kitchen and a
"teaching" garden. Plans for both these areas are being
drawn up at the moment and we will share these with the
community once they have been finalised.
As a school we are of the view that if
the "growing" and "cooking" experiences are to be
worthwhile, and lasting, then the project needs to be a
real School-Community partnership. Consequently we will
be seeking your feedback, soon, on the level of
involvement and participation that you would like.
The SAKG program has a State-wide
Coordinator, Karen Duance, based at Elizabeth Downs
Primary School whose tasks include guiding SAKG schools
through the beginning stages.
More information and details will be
posted here in the near future.
