The school canteen is run by the P&C's Community Club. It is staffed by a full-time Canteen Manager, Danielle Moore, who is assisted by parent volunteers. 

The canteen is open 5 days a week from 8.30am and sells a variety of meal and snack options. In addition to standard meals, there is a lunch special for each day of the week, which can include nachos, pizza, spaghetti bolognaise, butter chicken & rice and more. The lunch specials menu changes each week to keep the menu appealing and seasonal. Check the newsletter & canteen notice boards for the current & next week specials menu.

Danielle is running a Canteen Ideas box in term 1 & is open to menu suggestions from students and parents for the daily lunch specials. She's had ratatouille amongst the student requests! 

Special offers are available on some special occasions such as sausage sizzles and footy feast lunches.

The canteen follows the NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy, using 'traffic lights' to rate the healthiness of each item. "Green" items are available at all times, whilst "orange" items are restricted. No 'red' items are sold in our canteen. 

The canteen also sells bags of diced fresh fruit & vegetables for the daily in classroom "crunch & sip" activity at 10:30am..

The colour coded 2017 canteen menu is available here.

Lunch orders

Lunch orders are taken from 8.30 – 9.30am at the canteen. Students who attend Outside School Hours Care (Camp Australia) in the mornings can place an order by filling out a lunch order bag (available near the sign-on sheets in the Camp Australia room) and enclosing money. Please try to include the correct money. Where change is needed, it will be included with the student’s order. 

Lunch vouchers for children who forget their lunch

If a student forgets to bring lunch to school, the canteen will provide a sandwich, a drink and a piece of fruit. The student will also receive a note advising parents that this has occurred with a request to reimburse the canteen as soon as possible.
