Last week a delightful bunch of students had the pleasure of serving morning tea to Bill McDonald, the camera man and chopper pilot from Channel 7 news after they had landed on the oval. Year two classes had made pumpkin and silverbeet frittata and a lime and coconut syrup cake for the crew to enjoy. Mr McDonald was very impressed at the calibre of the food and commented that this is one of the few schools where they had ever been offered home made cooking! They had a tour of the garden and met some of the students who were hard at work planting and harvesting. The kitchen crew was impeccable with their manners and the service they provided to the news team was fit for royalty! Well done kids!
We have been harvesting lots of crunchy lettuce, which was utilised this week in the kitchen. Cooks made chicken kofta’s with sweet chilli dipping sauce wrapped in the harvested lettuce leaves. Lots of super healthy kale was sprayed lightly with oil then cooked in the oven until crisp to make kale ‘chips’.
Our ‘seed’ theme continues with classes planting their now germinated broad bean seeds into the garden beds where over the coming weeks they will observe the complete cycle of a seed.
We have sown the following seeds for future planting into the beds: sweet corn, sugar snap peas, beans and beetroot and we continue to harvest limes, eggplant, tomatoes and lots of greens.
Until next fortnight, Happy gardening!
