Reaching for the Heights

Singleton Heights Public School, NSW

In the Hunter region of NSW, this school has identified a need to build the confidence, resilience and independence of a targeted group of students before they transition into high school. The students, mostly boys in Years 5 and 6, are at risk of disengaging and need additional support to address behaviour and attendance issues.

The school wants to introduce a project-based learning program for this targeted group that focuses on social and practical skills, improves the students’ confidence in their abilities and boosts their learning engagement and aspirations. A male mentor/teacher is leading the group; together, they have identified a hands-on cooking program as their initial approach.

The vision is to teach the students the basics of cooking and broaden their knowledge of nutrition in a practical way, to instigate good eating habits that create healthier minds and bodies. This program is also expected to improve students’ teamwork, communication and literacy skills, through their reading of recipes and writing a journal about their experiences. It also aims to have a positive roll-on effect for the eating habits of the students’ families.

Your support will enable the school to purchase a portable kitchen and run the Cook In A Box program for a year as part of this targeted project-based learning program. About 50 students are expected to participate over the year, and staff leading the program will receive training to deliver the lessons and evaluate the students’ growth in resilience and engagement.
