and snack options for all visitors.
Grade 1 – Grade 5 students eat in the primary school cafeteria. Class teachers supervise all children. If you require any special dietary requirements, due to food allergies, please let your teacher know in writing, and this will be passed on to the catering staff, the school nurse and the Primary Principal.
A few tips for students to remember at lunchtime:
- Make sure you have clean hands!
- Wait quietly at your table in the cafeteria. (Your teacher will show you where this is on your first day).
- Make sure you sit in the same seat on the same table each day, please.
- If you do not have a plate of food, you should ask the teacher on duty at your table to help get one for you.
- You should try to eat as much as you can from your plate.
- When you have finished, you may go to get more food, salad or bread.
- If you are not taking salad or bread, then you must stay in your seat until it is time to leave the cafeteria.
- Everyone at your table should help to tidy the table before you leave.
Please remember that parents are always welcome to use the canteen facilities and enjoy lunch or a quick snack while at school. We welcome any comments and suggestions that you may have to make our service better.
The school has a responsibility to ensure that wherever possible we provide healthy eating choices for all students. We regularly work to ensure that healthy eating is promoted within the classroom and children understand the food choices that we give them.
