University students observe kitchen garden program
Woy Woy Public School hosted students from the University of Newcastle to observe its kitchen garden program in June.
"We are justifiably proud of our program here at Woy Woy Public School and it appears our program is highly regarded over at the University of Newcastle as well," said relieving principal Mr Dan Betts.
"We've hosted students who are undertaking the university's sustainability course for pre-service teachers for three years now and have been voted the highlight of their Sustainability Visits Week for each of those three years," he said.
The university students visited the school from June 24 to 28 to observe the program in action, tour the program facilities and enjoy a meal prepared by students using produce largely grown and harvested on site.
"This ongoing relationship is an excellent example of the school garnering recognition for its progressive educational programs in the wider community, and we are very proud of the connection we have been able to establish with the University of Newcastle," Mr Betts said.
