Fresh is best, especially at school

SHOALHAVEN High School showcased its sustainable habits to the community at the annual partners’ morning tea on Friday.

At least 100 guests and students filled the school hall as hospitality students catered to the hungry crowd.

Tea and coffee cups were clinked while guests admired the school’s displays including a produce and plant stall.

Shoalhaven High School junior school representative council (SRC) staffed the extensive produce stall, which showcased fresh eggs, spices, herbs, fruit and vegetables, all available for purchase.

Shoalhaven High School junior SRC co-ordinator Deb Hargraves said the students sold produce from their stall every week to promote the idea of sustainability.

“Everything that is made from the sales goes back into the farm and is also now going towards the re-establishment of our gardens at the back of the school,” she said.

Shoalhaven High School principal Kem Rakiposki said the annual event had a dual purpose.

“We hold the event to recognise the contribution of our school’s community partners and we intend to continue those important relationships for many years to come,” he said.

“This event is also an opportunity to induct our new school leaders.”

Shoalhaven High School also displayed a previous Archibull prize entry at the morning tea. As grand champions of the 2013 competition, their prized cow is on its way to Sydney for display at the Sydney Royal Easter Show.
