Dear Parents / Caregivers,

During our next unit in Year 9 Food Technology, students will be examining the history of food in Australia – beginning with traditional bush foods prepared by Aborigines, the influence of early European settlers as well as the continuing immigration from a variety of cultures. They will examine the subsequent effects of this food evolution on contemporary Australian eating patterns.

As well as a tour of the gardens, students will get the opportunity to engage with food in Australia by investigating, preparing and tasting Aboriginal bush foods and discovering how the diet began to evolve when the European settlers farmed food on this land.
