Picture: Gene RamirezStudents, staff and parents at Riverstone Public School came together as term one came to a close for the opening of the school’s new outdoor kitchen.

The facilitiy was officially declared open on Wednesday, April 1, via a sausage sizzle following the school’s Easter hat parade.

Students will make use of the kitchen for their Thursday morning breakfast club and their toast club every other morning of the school week.

They will also have the chance to learn about healthy eating with a variety of different cooking classes throughout the school year.

Wesley Family Centre, who has its own building on the school grounds, added finances to the construction of the kitchen. The remainder was raised via the school’s P&C.

Manager of Wesley Family Centre, Marisa Turcinskis, said the kitchen was an essential.

‘‘It will hopefully help the kids identify what is healthy and help them learn how to cook healthy foods,’’ she said.

‘‘They can then take that information to their parents who can introduce it to the family home, all while keeping on a budget.’’

School promoter and Aboriginal Education Officer, Tegan Hulm, said pupils would also learn some handy life skills at the kitchen.

‘‘Many kids might not get breakfast or lunch from home and so with the information they will get from particular kitchen activities, they might be able to make the food at home themselves,’’ she told the Courier.

The school’s English, History and Science units will also make use of the kitchen for a range of practical lessons.
