Westlawn Public School benefit from new ‘Kitchen Kart’

Westlawn Public School teaches primary school students important cooking skills. They had limited space for students to take part in these programs.

Federal Member for Page Kevin Hogan announced $20,000 last year for a new ‘Kitchen Kart’.

“It is great to see Westlawn has now purchased the portable teaching kitchen, and is up and running,” Mr Hogan said.

“This will allow more students to take part in these interactive classes.”

“The ‘Kitchen Kart’ is a compact mobile teaching kitchen that comes with an oven, stovetop and a kitchen sink.”

“This new equipment allows staff to teach anywhere in the school with ease.”

“Teaching children the basics of cooking is a great way to broaden their knowledge of nutritious food and nutrition in a practical way.”

All schools across the electorate were encouraged to apply for this funding to make improvements to their school environment.

The Local Schools Community Fund is open to all schools but eligibility conditions will apply. Schools were able to lodge one application for each of their campuses. For future rounds, visit https://schools.education.gov.au/ to apply.
