Understanding Sustainability - from the Garden to the Table
We are committed to experiential learning that provides hands-on activities in real world situations, as it both motivates and promotes meaning for students. Our Year 3 program, Understanding Sustainability - from the Garden to the Table, is a good example of this. Students explore what it means to live more sustainably in an urban environment through doing. The students are responsible for monitoring the use of power in Junior School, collecting and recycling waste paper and fruit snacks. They learn how to grow and maintain a productive vegetable garden and cook their produce, absorbing rich cultural traditions with the support of a passionate gardener and cook. We aim to instil habits and interests that become lifelong.
In Years 3 to 6, home tasks are set to help students develop regular study habits and cater for the needs of all students.
