The canteen is operated by Mrs Heather Lane and casual staff, who are employed by the school, plus parent volunteers who are rostered on to help once a month.
There is a new NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy and our school canteen is working towards supporting and achieving this strategy by the start of 2020. The NSW Government’s strategy aims to promote health and wellbeing of students by providing healthier food and drink choices to encourage healthy growth and development.
All profits made in the Canteen are returned to the school for distribution throughout the school for additional services.
Parents can order lunches online through www.flexischools.com.au. Flexischools is the only way to order lunch. Snacks and noodles can be purchased over the counter at recess and lunch, but all lunch orders must come through Flexischools. Register by visiting the site, clicking ‘register now’ on the top right hand side of the screen. An email is then sent with a link to the registration page. Complete the registration form, enter your child’s name and class, choose a username and password and then add funds to an account by credit card or back transfer. This is a fast and convenient way to enable an order to be made.
Orders can be made at any time of the day or night. However, accounts must be in credit to enable an order to be placed. There is even an App available.
The canteen requires volunteers each day to assist the canteen staff, if you are able to help one day per month please email the canteen at email@example.com or phoning the school and asking to be put through to the canteen. Volunteering in the canteen is a wonderful way to meet other parents and to make new friends within the school community.
The canteen is open each day before school from 8:00am for breakfast and at recess and lunch providing a variety of healthy food.
