What we offer

Each school in NSW offers something slightly different depending on the community. Here's what we offer for you.

Canteen

All canteens in NSW public schools must meet certain requirements. These include providing more healthy food and drink options – to make the healthy choice an easy choice for students. Visit Healthy school canteens to learn more.

The Canteen provides healthy and nutritious morning teas and lunches for our students five days per week. The Canteen sub-committee of the P&C manages the Canteen and a supervisor is employed to manage day-to-day operations. Our Canteen could not operate without the generous support of volunteers. Three to four parents/carers are needed each day to ensure our Canteen functions properly.

Lunches are ordered online via flexischools.com.au by setting up an account. Lunches are collected by class monitors before lunch. Kindergarten children are not permitted to order their lunch until Week 5 of Term 1.

Students in Years K-2 are not allowed to bring money to school or purchase items over the counter. Years K-2 students are allowed to order 'frozens', which can be collected after they have eaten their lunch. These ‘frozen’ orders must be included in their flexischools order. Students in Years 3-6 can purchase items over the counter at recess and at lunch time (after they have eaten their lunch). A Canteen price list can be downloaded from the P&C website.

Uniforms

When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.

Students, teachers, parents and carers, as well as members of our local community helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation

  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics

  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities

  • is suitable for all body shapes.

Learn more about the NSW Department of Education’s School Uniform Policy.

The school community expects that all students will wear school uniform. The community adopted a policy of compulsory school uniform in 1989. The staff monitors uniform and parents/carers are informed if their child does not wear the school uniform.
