Former MKR contestants cook up motivation in the classroom

FORMER My Kitchen Rules contestants Carly Saunders and Tresne Middleton are cooking up more than their usual fine dining as they bring their new motivational program to Central Queensland schools.

The couple's "The Happiness Mission" focuses on the health and wellbeing of Australian youth, and will be coming to Rockhampton, Yeppoon and Gladstone schools between May 26 and June 5.

The program aims to build resilience, teach the advantages of healthy eating, build self confidence and enable students to set goals.

During their time on season five of the hit show, the pair shocked producers behind the scenes with their revelation that they didn't have aspirations in cooking, but in motivational speaking.

Carly and Tresne said it was amazing to see their dream realised.

"We wanted to prove to ourselves and to our students that if you have a passion, anything is possible," they said.

"It's been a long journey, but it's been so worth it; things we couldn't even fathom being possible has happened. We just want to pay it forward."

The pair said they were particularly excited to visit Great Keppel Island during their time in the region.

Interested?

Schools in the region interested in bringing "The Happiness Mission" to classrooms are invited to contact the program.
