JUNIOR MasterChefs were out in force at Blackburn South’s St Luke the Evangelist Primary School last week.

An ongoing experiment which began at the start of term 2 ended with a community luncheon for parents and friends of the school.

Deputy Principal Julie David said the school was committed to providing students with healthy eating options and was determined to showcase good foods.

“This investigation began at the end of term 2 with the classes creating their own worm farms,” she said.

“The aim of making these worm farms was to produce fertiliser for our school vegetable patch so we would have healthy produce for this term’s inquiry. This term one of our mums came in to share her knowledge of food and healthy eating.

“We created healthy meals to share at home using at least one of the vegetables that are growing in our vegetable patch at school.”


Sensational Seniors Luncheon

Today was the culmination of our Term of Learning. We have discovered many new things about Healthy food, planning and creating great meals to share and why we need nutrients from fresh healthy food for our bodies.
The whole junior level created the menus, decorations, food and entertainment to share with over 40 senior citizens from our community. It was a fantastic day for us all!
