MarketFresh Schools program feedback:


What the teachers, students and parents say about the MarketFresh schools program:


Thank you from Teacher via Email 25 October 2016.

Dear Carolyn,

PHI here to let you know how much we enjoyed your talk with us this morning at 10:00am.

We loved trying all the different fruits and vegetables. Our favourite fruits were strawberries, oranges, bananas and apples. Our favourite vegetable was asparagus.

We learnt that it is important to keep our tomatoes in the fruit bowl NOT in the fridge so they can ripen.

We will now ask our parents to buy some of the fruits and vegetables we tasted today.

Thank you for coming to St Kevin’s Primary School. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Hi Carolyn,

Thank you again for coming to St Brendan’s and teaching our children (and the adults) so much!

This is what one of my students wrote (see below):

On Friday 13th May, 2016 two people from the Melbourne Fruit Market came to our school and talked to us about the Market they work at. We learnt that is isn’t just a market that public people can shop at, it’s a market where companies shop at. They shop when we’re all asleep!! We also got to try some new fruits and vegetables like tomato, cucumber, banana, orange, capsicum, fennel and much more.

Sop thank you Melbourne Market for teaching us so much. We all learnt a lot!

Hi Carolyn,

Thank you for coming to our school to teach about fruit and vegetables.

3D had lost of fun trying new foods and learning how to keep fruit and vegetables fresh.

We really liked trying:

  • Pear
  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Tomatoes
  • Celery

We tried and some of us liked:

  • Snow peas
  • Capsicum

All the fruit and vegetables were delicious. The videos were good and we like the bunny.

Thanks again

Dear Ms Creed,
Fountain Gate Primary School children really appreciates that you’ve been coming to our school for the past couple of years. We also would like to thank you for all you have been teaching us about the fruits and veggies that have been in the Market Fresh presentation.
It would be an honour for the teachers and the students for you to come again next year to teach us more about the Market Fresh program. Market Fresh is a great way to teach the students about growing, selling or buying the perfect kinds of fruits and vegetables.
Once again thank you for coming to our school and teaching us about what to store in our fruit baskets and we really hope we will see you once again next year for the Market Fresh Program.

Yours Sincerely,

Grade 5D students
