MRPS Kitchen Garden Open Day
We are excited to welcome all MRPS students, teachers and staff along with our parents and community members to our first Kitchen Garden Open Day. This is an opportunity for everyone to visit and view firsthand the wonderful facilities and environments that we have worked so hard to establish and embed into our school programs since starting our garden program in 2009. We have made great progress over the years with valuable community support. You will also see our new shed which was paid for with the generosity of our P&C, and Margaret River Lions and Rotary Clubs at the beginning of the school year.
The Open Day commences following the whole school assembly on Monday 10th December at approximately 10.00am and concludes at 4.00pm.
Staff and students visit the kitchen garden from 10.00am to 12.30pm.
Community members visit from 1.00pm to 4.00 pm
Food Stall: ON SALE…throughout the day from 11.00am
Delicious healthy popsicles……..$3 each (3 delicious flavours)
A cake stall (fruit and veg themed) provided by Year 4 – 5 parents and students using our SAKGF and family favourite recipes.
Please bring your spare change and enjoy!
Our own potted plants, seedlings and fresh garden produce……..assorted prices.
Be sure to pick up a bargain!
The Year 4 and Year 5 Kitchen Garden students will be preparing and selling these items. All proceeds of sales will help provide the ongoing support that this program needs to continue to offer the very best for our students. Currently about 230 students are involved in the program each week.
We will also have an enticing raffle with donations from our generous family and business supporters.
We look forward to sharing the day with you.
