Queanbeyan South Public School is very fortunate to be one of the very few primary schools in Australia to have a school kitchen. This is enhanced by our own very productive school garden.

The kitchen was originally established by a grant from the Stephanie Alexander Foundation and supplemented with extensive school funds.

The official opening held in 2013 has enabled primary classes to work in a six bay state of the art kitchen. QSPS employs a kitchen specialist three days a week to guide students in the preparation of highly nutritious produce they have grown in the school garden under the guidance of our garden specialist. Students from Year 3 to Year 6 participate in a specific curriculum based kitchen/garden program, while Kindergarten to Year 2 students visit the garden and kitchen with their teachers on a regular basis.
