About the Canteen

The school canteen is run largely through volunteer parent efforts, and provides a wide variety of healthy snacks and meals for the students and staff. The canteen is open for orders and counter sales on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

We need volunteers to work in the Canteen to prepare hot and cold lunches for our hungry growing children and to serve over the counter at recess and lunch.

As a canteen volunteer you can help out either for a full day, a part day or even one hour to cover either the morning collation of lunch orders and recess, or the lunch period. A Working With Children Card is required.

The children really LOVE to see a familiar face on the other side of the counter, and it is a great way to get to know other parents within the school.

Forms are available at the canteen.


The canteen absolutely prefer to receive all payments and orders through the Qkr app. It is seamless and simple to use, very secure, and means you can order lunch for your kids from your phone.

Visit the Qkr page on this website, or talk to the office staff if you need help getting set up.

Late Lunch Orders

Orders should be placed no later than 9.15am.

Although we do our very best to ensure everyone gets the lunch they desire, should lunch order be handed in to the canteen late (received after 11:30) they will be given a standing lunch order: a cup of chicken noodles charged at menu prices.

This is to replace any hot food or sandwiches ordered. All drinks and snack food will be honoured, assuming stock is available.
