Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program

Our gardens are going to be in the newspaper!

I had a very busy last day of term yesterday with a visit from the Newcastle Herald and The Post. Our kitchen and gardens will be in the Newcastle Herald either today (Saturday) or early next week (probably Monday). So look out for us in the paper!


Our new Memorial Garden will feature in The Post on the 23rd April, in their ANZAC issue. Very exciting times and great publicity for our beautiful kitchen and garden!

A big thank you to our wonderful holiday chicken carers!

We have 4 families and back up helpers for the holidays. Thanks again for your support of our program. An enormous thanks for the families of these students below:


  • Elliot Field
  • Scarlet Longman-Cowles
  • Ella & Thomas Stamp
  • Mikayla Jones & Bailey McGowan
