+ ABOUT HAPPY HENS
Happy Hens Café was established in 2015 as a student-run business serving the Springwood College community. Year 6 students work according to a roster to serve coffees, milkshakes, pancakes, croissants, muffins, toasties and various other menu items to students, families and staff. Open for breakfast twice weekly, as well as some afternoons and for special events and staff lunches, the café has become a very popular meeting place and an important part of our community. The addition of a large wood fire pizza oven in 2016 has also allowed us to cater for whole-campus community events such as our pizza and outdoor movie nights.
+ HAPPY HENS EGG PROGRAM
Students in Years 4 to 6 care for up to 25 laying hens at our Springwood campus. The eggs are sold through the Happy Hens student-run business which has been accredited through Safe Food Queensland. Students collect, clean, stamp and package eggs according to regulations and sell them within the Springwood College community.
The chicken coop sits within a series of raised garden beds and so students also get involved in gardening and organic recycling activities. Students from Pre-prep through to Year 6 have opportunity to engage with the chickens and Vege Patch throughout the year and parents are also very welcome to visit in the mornings and afternoons.
