Yanginanook has a range of home-like facilities that include classrooms, library, large kitchen, office and group-learning areas. The outdoor facilities include a mini oval, play equipment, sandpit, vegetable garden, compost and frog pond – all surrounded by native bush land.
The school’s kitchen and vegetable garden give an added dimension to a standard school program. Our students:
• plant seeds and seedlings to monitor the growth of different plants
• fertilise the garden bed with the school’s own compost and worm farm
• are involved in a healthy eating program where students cook recipes, using vegetables and herbs from the garden
