The Canteen operates five days a week, providing lunches and is open to the students at Lunch One (11:00 am – 11:35 am). We follow a very high standard of hygiene and provide a variety of healthy foods. Our prices are kept at a reasonable level as a service to the students, but we do not compromise on quality.
We purchase locally – fresh products rather than frozen foods, low fat, low sugar, preservative and colourings free whenever possible. Our Menu is checked and changed at the beginning of each season and can be accessed on the school app.
Special promotions are held at the Canteen throughout the year, such as Pancake Tuesday and Harmony Week. There is always something happening at Aggies Canteen, lots of prizes and giveaways to encourage healthy eating.
On behalf of the Teachers, P&F, and the students, we would like to issue a special invitation to parents and family members to become a volunteer at the canteen. Our Canteen Coordinator, Rebecca Rissel, organises the food, and the roster, and will be at the Canteen every morning to greet and help you. You will enjoy your time spent with us, and your child will love to see you. Contact the school office if you would like to help, or call in to see our Coordinator any morning.
Parents are asked to write their child’s lunch order on a paper bag, enclose the correct money and then the child places their order in the lunch boxes provided in every class.
An example of a lunch order is shown below.
Nut Free Policy
It is our intention to endeavour to make our school environment as safe as possible for all.
Our most urgent concerns have been for a small group of children who have a severe allergy to peanuts. Exposure to nut products for these children will trigger a serious reaction. Such a reaction could be fatal if not treated quickly and appropriately. For this reason, we are asking your co-operation to help reduce the risk for these children.
Ideally, this means that we are strongly recommending parents pack lunches and snacks that are free from peanuts or nut products. In real terms, this means not sending:
• Peanut Butter
• foods that contain nuts (e.g.: crunchy nut biscuits/muesli bars with nuts)
We sincerely thank each and every parent for taking the time to read and consider this Policy. We understand that these measures will require extra thought when packing your child’s lunch. Your cooperation will enable these children and their families to feel supported and safer in their school environment.
