STEPHANIE ALEXANDER KITCHEN GARDEN PROGRAM
Each week Stage 2 and 3 students spend the morning tending to the kitchen gardens. Delicious meals are cooked each fortnight, using ingredients they harvest, in ‘soil-to-plate’ style. These classes provide the students with invaluable life lessons and hands-on food education, leading to life-long good food choices.
This program has recently been extended to our 5-year-old children in Stage 1.
We are the only Montessori school in Sydney to participate in this program.
In first term of each year all children over the age of five are involved in the NSW Swim Safe Program. A daily swimming lesson for a fortnight at a local council pool is enjoyed by all. The younger children learn water confidence and basic swimming techniques, whilst the older children attend stroke correction classes to improve their technique.
Private tuition in Suzuki Violin and Piano are available on the premises of Southside Montessori School. Lessons can be scheduled during or after school hours.
