Eat, play, learn.Canteen.

Hours of operation:     Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. – 1:50 p.m.



Our canteen is called ‘Eat, Play, Learn'. It is managed by one paid supervisor who is assisted by volunteers. We have a Canteen Committee consisting of a convener, scribe and a P & C treasurer. We are classified as a designated Healthy Canteen with an average of 90% healthy food products and ingredients used in the preparation of our food items. We endeavour to prepare many of our menu items on site, excluding pies, sausage rolls and bread products which we buy in. Our canteen does not sell nut products.



Recess is an over-the-counter operation with a menu that changes daily. Common food items are garlic bread, home-made biscuits and slices, cake products, fruit salad, mousse, and crackers with cheese. In winter this changes to warm filling food.



Lunch orders are either placed in our lunch order box, over the counter or through FlexiSchools. We have a summer (Term 1 & 4) and winter (Term 2 & 3) menu. Orders need to be placed by 9.30am. 



Our volunteers are our lifeblood who not only offer labour but also menu ideas. They come and teach us what they are trained in so we all learn from each other's experiences. There is no way we would have the canteen that we have without them. Volunteers are provided with lunch and a drink, friendship, support and respect in return for their valuable services. Each term we organise 2 special theme days when food classified as ‘occasional' food/drink can be sold. These days are very popular with the students. We try to make it different each time.



New volunteers are very welcome at our canteen. We operate by the slogan "Welcome to our Happy Place" and endeavour to ensure that each volunteer leaves our canteen and the day rewarded in the knowledge that their valued time was well spent with much appreciation and thanks. Any funds surplus to our needs is donated to the P & C Association.
