Pie Time at Mittagong Preschool

Bush Tucker Pie

The children have been making potions in the outdoor environment and the other day we noticed that Holly made a pie. In the creative room, the children have been discussing some bush tucker, trying damper and kangaroo sausages.  Putting these two things together, we entered the community section of the Southern Highland’s Pie Competition – creating a Bush Tucker Pie, with kangaroo and bush herbs and a yam topping!  Some of the children were a little unsure of the pie, but others thought it was delicious!

Pie Day

We hosted a super-successful Pie Drive. Thanks to everyone who ordered pies in the drive – we had an overwhelming response!  Thanks also to Alicia Jones for organising this wonderful Winter Southern ‘Pie’lands fundraiser.  Further thanks to Southern Rise Bakery for providing the pies.

We thought it would be nice to share some of the pies with the preschoolers, so on Tuesday 19th June, we heated up some beef pies and apple pies for the children to sample. They received the thumbs up!
