St Dominic's Home Economics Kitchen Project


St Dominics Savio is a friendly, local primary school that is currently struggling to meet the financial demands from the recent government push on non-core subjects. There is a particular need to update the pupil kitchen area used during lessons and lunchtime clubs to help pupils develop their cookery skills and encourage them to eat healthily.

Our goals:

  • To update the home economics kitchen project for St Dominic Savio school to develop the children's skills on non-core subjects (cookery and healthy eating) and meet national curriculum.
  • To enable the school to run additional cookery classes that will encourage healthy eating with the pupils and their families.
£5k project Currently ranked in

How we will achieve our goals

A new kitchen area will undoubtedly help inspire and encourage the children with cooking and will help the school achieve its ambition to develop its pupils beyond just the core curriculum subjects.

Where the money will go

This help will further encourage the children to develop their cookery skills and a love of healthy eating. Every pupil in school, as well as their families, would benefit.

    My great niece attends St Dominics Savio and I know she will benefit greatly from the new kitchen area. I believe that its important for children to understand the benefits of healthy eating because this will encourage parents to provide their children have a healthy diet.
    I am happy to vote for St Dominics and would encourage others to go to the trouble of doing the same.

    A new kitchen area will help teach all the children basic cooking techniques. These are an essential step towards healthy eating and the consumption of fresh food, in particular vegetables and fruit.

    This is a really worthwhile project to encourage children to learn how to cook and eat healthily.
    These skills are the basis of a healthy and happy way of life and should be taught in all schools.

    Thank you so much. My daughter is in Year 1 and I know they are not using the kitchen area yet but when they are able to do this fingers crossed it will be the new kitchen! Very exciting!
    Thank you for voting and encouraging others! My husband and I are due to present to the PTA later this evening to get all parents/teachers on board.

    An incredibly valuable resource to help children understand the importance of healthy eating and to allow them to have fun making their own food! Learning to cook healthily is a life skill and this project will be accessible to all the children enabling them to develop their inner Bake Off Champion! Very happy to support this worthwhile project!!
