Our Canteen Manager is Danielle Gilchrist.
The Canteen is open Wednesday*, Thursday and Friday from 9am to 1.15pm.
*Wednesday is open for Online Flexischools Orders only*
On a Thursday and Friday, the Canteen provides 'Over the Counter' sales for Recess (10.30am) and Lunch (12.30pm).
Our menu meets the National Healthy School Canteen Guidelines. This means we only provide food on our menu that meets the Green/Amber 'traffic light spectrum'. There are no items on the menu categorised as Red. We aim to provide nutritious and appealing food at an affordable price.
To view our Menu, visit www.flexischools.com.au, enter our school name in the green box “enter school here…”. Select your child’s class name. Then choose a Recess or Lunch order option to view the ordering options available. Alternatively, ask for printed copy of our Menu at the Front Office or visit Danielle in the Canteen.
There are two options for placing an order at the canteen – Online Flexischools Order (Wed, Thurs, Fri) or Manual Order (Thurs & Fri only).
The canteen encourages placing orders through an online ordering service. Orders can be placed until 9.30am on the day for recess and lunch. Alternatively, orders can be placed in advance.

Note: In 2014, we transitioned from School24 to Flexischools for our online canteen services. If you hold funds in a School24 account we can transfer these funds to your new Flexischools account. Submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org
We accept cash orders too for recess and lunch (Thurs & Fri only). Write your child's name, class, and unit and food to be ordered on a paper bag. Enclose the required money. Please try to use correct change or as close as possible. There is a 30c Parent Order Fee per manual order. Manual orders take more time and cost to process than online orders.
Your child can then place the bag in the lunch order basket located in their classroom. If your child forgets to put their order in the basket, they can come to the canteen so their order can be filled. We do our best to accommodate late orders or will provide a sandwich.Volunteer Help
The canteen relies on the generosity of people like you. Our canteen can't run without volunteers; parents, carers and grandparents! If you have a spare morning, or a spare hour, we would love to meet you. Come and have a cuppa, a chat and help us:
- Prepare things for a salad – slice tomato, grate carrot, shred lettuce.
- Make muffins, sandwiches or pikelets.
- Bag up (placing food items into the bags).
- Wash-up or clean.
Our children love seeing us in the canteen during the day. We find the canteen provides parents and carers a chance to meet others and form networks and friendships within the school community.
