School lunches

School lunches are always a topic of conversation! 

We encourage children to eat their lunch several times through out the day - and your child's Home Room teacher can let you know how that works in their space.  Some of the Junior LCs may also have a feed and read time built in to their programme in addition the morning tea and lunch break.  

 

We encourage recycling by using reusable bags rather than glad wrap, and all rubbish is taken home in their lunchbox, along with any leftover food.   

As much as possible, we encourage children to eat healthily.  With this in mind, we strongly discourage you sending chocolate, lollies and fizzy drinks in school lunches.  

 

At various times throughout the year the PTA or specific Learning Communities may hold sausage sizzles or sell hot savouries at lunchtime to raise money for school camps or other activities.  You will be notified of these, and the process for purchasing them for your child, via out website, in the newsletter and LC notices. 

Drinks
Water is the best drink for school, and you can either send your child with a named drink bottle, or they can use the drinking fountains at school.  For safety reasons, glass bottles and containers are not permitted.  

We try to help out by organising lunch options now and then.  Here is a summary of what is currently on offer:

  • Monday to Thursday during Terms 2 and 3 we re-heat hot food.   Food needs to be pre-cooked, defrosted, wrapped in foil and clearly named please. No noodles or soup please.

  • Friday Sausage Sizzle: The Intermediate Syndicate are raising money for their activities and are selling sausages for $2 each.  Orders and money need to go to your Learning Community before 3pm each Thursday.

  • Thursday Sushi: orders need to be in by 3pm on a Wednesday and you can find the form in the office, or print one from the right hand side of this page.
