The students at St Patrick's Port Kembla recently spent an amazing day working in their permaculture garden, The Living Classroom. Each year, the girls and boys in Year 4 are ‘garden ambassadors’, where they work together in the garden, learning about permaculture principles, building soil, planting trees, growing amazing produce and having fun in the sun – and occasionally the rain!
On this particular occasion children were very lucky to be joined by Mila’s Baba, who baked amazing Macedonian savoury treats called kifli in the school's wood fire pizza oven. The girls and boys had an absolute blast in the process, and were guided diligently by Mila, the resident master baker.
A huge thanks to Baba for providing the children with such a rich, rewarding experience. The kifli were delicious and after working hard in the garden a most deserving treat.
