stephanie alexander kitchen garden (sakg)

The Stephanie Alexander Kitchen to Garden (SAKG) program is an innovative approach to food and environmental education. All students at LPS have the opportunity throughout the year to learn about planting, growing and harvesting food crops, preparing and sharing food, weather and seasons, environmental issues and building links with our local community. 
LPS has a fabulous kitchen set up which includes four student kitchen work stations with separate cook top and sink, a teacher display station which includes a cook top, two 90cm ovens, dishwashers and much more.
This program provides students with opportunities to build literacy, numeracy and social skills through a hands on, practical approach. Students develop an awareness of the fragility of our earth and the impact we have.

WHAT IS PLAY BASED LEARNING AT LPS AND WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT FOR OUR PREP/1 STUDENTS 



Children are naturally motivated to play and involvement in play stimulates a child’s interest in exploring and discovery. Play supports positive attitudes to learning. These include imagination, curiosity, enthusiasm, persistence, social skill development, cooperation, sharing, negotiating and resolving conflicts in a positive way.  These important characteristics are all reflected in our LPS school values and wellbeing philosophy.

School-wide positive behaviour support

School-wide positive behaviour support (SWPBS) is a framework that brings together school communities to develop positive, safe, supportive learning cultures

SWPBS assists schools to improve social, emotional, behavioural and academic outcomes for children and young people


At L.P.S we use a variety of programs to support the wellbeing of our students, staff and school community. As a School Wide Positive Behaviours School we have established clear expectations to create a calm and respectful environment. The explicitly taught programs, You Can Do It and Respectful Relationships, are complimented by The Berry Street Education Model and other initiatives such as Safeminds and Be You. Our approach to wellbeing supports the social and emotional growth and mental health of our students, equipping them with the tools to make positive decisions about their learning and behaviour.
