The Final Week of Term 1

For our final week we repeated last week’s menu of:


Pasta with a Vegetable Sauce

Curried Eggs

Pizza of the Imagination

Pumpkin and Spinach Salad

Salad of the Imagination


There were countless changes to staff, times, routines, etc. so it was really good to be doing a repeat menu. I think we should do this for the final week of every term.

The base of the pizza oven is now complete – building of the oven will take place in June.


All of the raised beds in the new garden have been planted with seeds or seedlings! Brocolli, Cauliflower, Garlic, Broad Beans, Coriander, Rocket, Parsley, Lettuce, Onions, Spring Onions, Cabbage, Kale and Snow Peas! We have also re-planted several of our existing beds, mainly with garlic, broad beans and coriander.

This is one of our new raised beds

Jobe carefully waters the seeds

Thomaz planted snow peas

Shannon planted rocket in one of the raised beds

We continue to be thrilled with the way that our students are embracing the program and eating such a wide range of foods. This week we saw Michael eating pasta, Jack B eating pasta sauce and raw pasta (while he was cooking it!) and pizza, and Daniel tucking in to pumpkin and spinach salad.

Michael really enjoyed the pasta

Jobe enjoyed the pasta raw!


Next term we start a new five week block consisting of:

·         Ravioli

·         Bread rolls

·         Salad

·         A vegetable dish

·         Soup


The menu for week 1 is:


Ravioli filled with Spinach and Ricotta and served with a Tomato Sauce

Salad of the Imagination

Wholemeal Rolls

Curried Carrot and Apple Soup

Potato Wedges
