George St Primary build students cooking skills virtually

In an end of term celebration like no other, George Street Primary School students cooked up a healthy hamburger for lunch with their teachers and peers - virtually!

Students would normally engage in some fun and hands on activities to mark the end of a successful term, so at the end of Term 3 2020 (a term like no other with remote learning a key feature for majority of students) the school community did just that, but virtually. 

George Street staff compiled take home cooking packs for families to collect from school, along with a list of all the equipment needed to cook the healthy hamburger at home. The cost of ingredients were fully covered by the school. Families then linked in via Microsoft Teams/Webex to participate in the cooking class, and even eat the finished product together!

What a fantastic way to finish a challenging school term. Congratulations George Street for thinking outside the box :)
