It would be great to see some new faces, so come in and enjoy a cuppa and a chat and Chantelle can show you around.

Ordering your child’s lunch or recess

Lunch Bags

Lunch bags are available at the canteen or front office. Re-useable lunch bags can be purchased from the Canteen for $10.00. The paper bags can also be purchased from most supermarkets.

Write ‘Recess’ or ‘Lunch’ on the bag, your child’s name, class teacher, room number and food ordered.

When using a lunch bag remember to use one bag for recess and one bag for lunch, do not staple or tape the bag and include the correct money for the order.

Lunch orders can be placed in the Lunch Basket in your child’s classroom or handed in at the Canteen.

Kindy and Pre-primary students cannot order recess, ice creams or icy poles
