St Columba's Kitchen Garden

St Columba's Kitchen Garden

St.Columba's Primary School have a little kitchen garden overflowing with healthy parsley and mint. It is well looked after by dedicated parents with some help from our students.

We are so happy to be able to share our produce with Sacred Heart Mission who do such an amazing job cooking meals for hundreds of people.  

St Columba's is proud to be a 5-Star Resource Smart School.  We're also closely affiliated with the Port Phillip Eco Centre and have won a number of sustainability awards and grants. Our students play an important role in these initiatives working together to lower rubbish consumption, reduce our energy usage and compost waste. We make good use of the compost in our thriving kitchen garden, which is part of Stephanie Alexander's renowned Kitchen Garden Program.

What our parents & students say

"One of the many aspects I love about our school is that the teachers really know my children. Not just by name but them as an individual, any learning difficulties they may be having and their individual learning."

Parent of Year 4 Student

We respectfully acknowledge the Boon Wurrung  people of the Kulin Nation, the traditional custodians of the Country on which we learn and play. We pay respect to ongoing living cultures of First Peoples, their ancestors and their Elders; past, present and emerging.
