Children in a kitchen classroom.

Students will learn about the science behind sustainable healthy cooking and living.

28 January 2020

Students at Torrens Primary School will soon learn about healthy home-style cooking and growing fresh produce in their new kitchen learning space.

The canteen area has been upgraded with new ovens, fridges and food preparation areas for the students. The teaching kitchen will promote authentic or hands-on learning and healthy lifestyles by encouraging students to grow fresh produce and practise healthy home-style cooking.

In addition to the usual curriculum, students will work in teams with chefs to learn about kitchen etiquette and the science behind sustainable healthy cooking and living.

The new facilities are among many upgrades taking place in the Woden region, as part of a significant investment in public school infrastructure across the ACT.
