Our canteen operates everyday across the school year. The canteen is operated by an external company and supplies a “healthy foods” menu which is registered through the ‘Go For Your Life” program.
Students are able to purchase some “snack” items across the counter at recess and lunchtime. As well, there is a lunch order process that enables students to order their lunch. Parents are able to purchases their child’s canteen lunch either through our Mernda app or students drop off their lunch orders first thing in the morning via their classroom. All lunches orders whether ordered through the Mernda app or brought to school are prepared and ready by lunchtime.
Canteen price lists are available online, on our website or from the School Office. Students select their lunch requirements from this list either online or write their request on a paper bag. The money for the lunch order should be placed inside the bag when handed in. In cases of emergency, (for example, when the student has forgotten to bring their lunch to school), a basic lunch can be provided for a child on the day. They will bring home a note with the cost of the lunch written on it – please settle this debt as a matter of priority to enable this service to continue. In all other circumstances, no credit is offered by the canteen.
Please ensure that sufficient money is provided to cover the cost of a lunch order.
