Canteen

The Canteen is run by a P&C sub-committee. The daily business of the Canteen is handled by a paid Manager who is helped by friends and family of the school's student body. The kids love going to the canteen and love it even more when their parent/carer or other family members are there. Our aim is to provide the students and staff with a range of nutritious lunch and snack choices. It is also great way to teach kids the value of money. Our menu is based on the traffic light system, filled with mostly Green and some Amber Foods. If you wish to find out more about the foods that are being sold by the canteen you can go to the Healthy Kids website.

How can you help the Canteen run smoothly:

  • Help out one morning a month (9.30am until 1.30pm). Your child loves to see you at school.
  • Be on the stand-by list to replace regular helpers in case of illness.
  • The Canteen Committee can always use another person. If you are concerned about what your child eats at school be part of the solution.

Help keep the prices down!

Donate an item once a term. Things like brown paper bags, aluminum foil, cling wrap, plastic forks, plastic spoons, SR Flour, brown sugar, rolled oats, Cocoa powder, snack size zip lock bags, serviettes, floor cleaner, spray & wipe, washing up detergent and dish cloths can always be used.

Every time an item is donated, two things occur:

  • We do not have to pass on the cost of the item and more of the canteen funds can be put back into the school.
  • The profits from the Canteen go back into the school to purchase items to improve students' education.
