On Friday 21 October, we had our annal Greats and Grands Day at our school.  We are lucky that each year grandparents support our students programmes.  A lot of the grandparents attend this special day year after year.  This year during our sustainable tours led by out students, we showcased our outdoor oven, making pizzas for our visitors using ingredients straight from the garden or stored from earlier in the year's harvest.  This was a great success.  We had many grandparents saying that this day just gets better and better each year.  Some grandparents have been coming along for five years and still enjoy the experience.  What a great opportunity to enjoy our family and school community together.

It is with great excitement that our students now have their outdoor oven completed and that they have experimented with their first cooking experience.  Using tomatoes (frozen) and onions (stored) from this year's harvest, students made their first pizzas. They showed skill rolling handmade pizza bases and topping with pizza favourites and thoroughly enjoyed eating the end result.
We would like to thank Mike Nightingale for assistance in building the oven,  Brad Wade from Foster Engineering for making our flue and for the Bird and White families for their assistance in building the base. A special thanks to Grandma Sharon and Pops for all the help in preparation for our successful cooking sessions, assistance in the gardens and for guidance in our learning each week we meet with our students.
