Students at Katandra participate in Food Technology sessions with a specialist teacher in our functional kitchen. These groups also have access to and utilise the produce grown in the Katandra Kitchen Garden.
Students learn basic kitchen skills, where food comes from, cooking around the world and how to grow food.
Students also learn about making healthy food choices. They learn about different tastes and eating your colours, nutrition and what people need to live a healthy life. Student’s participate in preparing breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks throughout the term.
There is a permanent classroom ES staff member in the Food Technology room with the teacher at all times to ensure that the programs run safely.
The students are proud of the skills they develop in Food Technology and always enjoy eating the delicious foods they make.
