Department allergen recommendations prohibit parents from bringing cakes etc in for your child’s birthday celebration. As an alternative, the Canteen can provide “Birthday Buckets” containing frozen fruit juice ice blocks. See the QKR! app or the menu online for more details.

If for some reason we do not have enough volunteers on the days of operation the canteen will regrettably be closed. For any parents interested in becoming part of our wonderful group of P&C volunteers, contact Belinda in the Canteen at

Throughout the year we will have additional specials available suited to the season. Look out for the specials through the Qkr! app.

NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy 

School canteens have an important role to play in providing healthy food and drink choices for students.

A healthy school canteen supports a 'whole-of-school' approach to student health and well-being and reinforces healthy eating messages taught in the classroom. The NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy, launched in February 2017, supports a culture of healthy eating in school by

  • promoting and increasing student access to healthier foods and drinks
  • decreasing student access to less healthy food and drinks
  • supporting water as a drink of choice
  • making a healthy choice an easy choice.


Our Canteen makes menu decisions under the NSW Healthy Schools Strategy and regularly audits our menu to ensure compliance. For more information click here.


If you have any queries or suggestions, please feel free to contact Belinda (our Canteen Manager) by email: or drop a note into the school office.
