Bush tucker day

24/05/2012

Middle school students recently participated in a ‘bush food’ day with visiting guest Graeme White from the Witjuti Grub Bushfood Nursery in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Students had been studying an integrated unit on food which looked at Aboriginal ‘bush tucker’, contemporary food choices, healthy nutritional practices in Australian culture and using financial mathematics skills to solve problems.

One of the culminating activities for students was the visit by a guest expert who spoke about bush foods, provided some samples and assisted students to plant out their own bush food garden adjoining the school’s cultural area.
