The West Coast Eagles have officially partnered with 98five’s Free Coffee Fridays as Kirste and Morro took this morning’s Brekky show to East Fremantle Primary School.
West Coast Eagles mascot Rick the Rock entertained the Dockers-mad students, kids took part in a footy clinic, and teachers and parents downed some free coffee and dug into free donuts thanks to friend of 98five, ice cream van man Paul.
The school has a passion for cooking and is a member of the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Foundation schools program. Students prepare and cook a multi-course meal using fresh produce harvested from the garden.
“We had a fantastic program where we did some olive oil making, so we got to find out what the process is for making olive oil,” said program head Anita Albones.
“There’s a lot that goes into it that we didn’t know. We bottled it and named it The East Femantle Primary School Olive Oil.”
The show caught with up YouthCARE chaplain Susan Hislop to talk about the dads and kids camp — an annual retreat that aims to grow relationships between fathers and children.
School principal Jennifer Chittick said the school, built in 1898, has a rich history and is quintessentially Fremantle.
“We’re heritage-listed so every time we need to have something done it’s a big job,” Mrs Chittck said.
