Healthy habits on the menu at Princes Street Primary

PRINCES  Street Primary School has celebrated joining the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program with the grand opening of its new kitchen facilities.
Princes Street Primary School is now one of 600 schools across Australia taking part in the program, which teaches students kitchen and garden skills and positive eating habits.
Princes Street Primary’s program coordinator Sue Clayton said the benefits of the school’s commitment were already evident.
“The real joy is seeing the kids embrace this whole experience and the huge number of parents and grandparents who have been joining us have added a very special dimension,” she said.
The Speaker of Tasmania’s House of Assembly, Elise Archer MP, recently visited the school to donate a cutlery set to the new facilities.
Ms Archer said she was impressed with the skill on show.
“The day I attended the students were preparing for a morning tea for their families. Muffins, savory scones and mini quiches were on the menu and to hear them talk about ‘chives’ and ‘nutritious’ with enthusiasm was so pleasing,” she said.
“It is such a joy to see the benefits already flowing at Princes Street Primary.”
Items are available at a gift registry at Your Habitat in Hobart for people who would like to help stock Princes Street Primary’s new kitchen.
