College Food Trail and Harvest Lunch Celebration

Last Thursday the College was in full celebration

The implementation this year of the ‘Pick My Project: Pakenham Community School Farm and Food Project’ has had tremendous impact across many areas of the College curriculum.

Students involved in various parts of this learning experience today proudly hosted the ‘College Food Trail and Harvest Lunch Celebration’. And what a celebration it was! Students were proud to showcase their involvement in the project and results of their learning and hard work.

The trail commenced with students greeting guests and taking them through various areas of the College – now transformed with fruit trees and garden beds growing an abundance of vegetables and herbs. Then the group walked past the beautiful student created murals adorning our buildings as they made their way to view the amazing transformation of the ‘The Dome’ – the Hands On Learning hub. The walk concluded with a moving cultural performance.

Guests were then treated to a delicious student prepared feast using produce grown at the College.

Well done everyone, despite the near 40 degrees in Melbourne, you demonstrated how applied learning can be fun and have significant community impact.
