A big welcome to Garden to Table, Henderson North School!
Henderson North is a decile 3 school situated in West Auckland and has a diverse, multicultural student community. Approximately 30% of students identify as Māori, 30% as Pasifika, and 20% of Asian heritage.
Students from years 3 and 4 began their Garden to Table sessions towards the end of term 1, with a huge part of the excitement being the visit from the MediaWorks TV cameras and Al Brown, to film Garden to Table's new television commercial. Less exciting was completing the long food literacy questionnaires!
Changes in food literacy over the year is being examined in partnership with Professor Sheila Skeaff, from the University of Otago's Department of Human Nutrition. We're excited to be able to track the impact of Garden to Table on a range of food literacy indicators, and are really looking forward to tracking students as they learn how to grow, harvest, prepare and share good food.
