Canteen

In accordance with the Healthy School Canteen Strategy, we will be implementing a few new items next term on the Flexischool menu.  All the main food items will still be available.

Over the last few years as a P&C initiative children that have no lunch or lost lunches were supplied with a vegemite or butter sandwich free of charge. Please talk to your children about their lunches and please ensure your child has a full lunchbox or a lunch order before they head to school.  Thank you for your understanding.

Enjoy the holiday break, see you next term.

  • Online orders will be delivered to your child’s class on a Thursday
