CANTEENOur canteen offers a wide range of healthy foods. Students order their lunch and recess from the classroom. Class lunch boxes are taken to the canteen by 9am and collected again at eating time, which is 11:10am for lunch and 1:20pm for recess. Students eat their lunch quietly together in their class groups. Ice blocks are sold in Term 1 and 4 during the afternoon recess break. If a child arrives at school after 9.30 am they may order their lunch from a modified canteen menu at the front office. No students may leave school grounds for lunch without written permission from their parents. We provide emergency lunches for students at a cost of 50 cents or ‘mutual exchange’ which may be arranged in lieu of the cost.
