Girraween Public School Gets Cooking

by Patrick Halaka | Apr 01,2016

Girraween Public School officially opened its brand new support unit class kitchen project which was funded by Wenty Leagues!

The kitchen will help service over 1,000 students, 38 of which have learning difficulties, behaviour  disorders and/or a disability.

With the addition of this new kitchen to the school’s facilities, Girraween Public School will be able to
implement a new High Quality Curriculum and Project Based Learning program specifically for the children with special learning needs.

The kitchen will allow the students to engage in maths and literacy lessons with cooking and food themes as well as learn practical real-world skills through working with fresh food products sourced from the school’s veggie garden and helping to prepare meals.
