Canteen Summer Menu Term 1 2018

Hi all!

Just to let you know that our Summer Menu Term 1 2018 has been updated. Please download a copy of the current menu and discard any previous menus.

There are only two changes to the Menu:

  1. Removal of home-made slushies
  2. Addition of Slush Puppies

As advised in our December Newsletter:

“Slush Puppies” are coming!

At our August P & C Meeting, the Committee approved the installation of a Slushie Machine for a trial period. Presently, we offer “home-made slushies” at a very cheap price but at a huge resourcing cost. Our slushies are both a time-consuming process and ineffective way of producing a popular item that sells out quickly! We simply cannot keep up with demand.

In installing a slush puppie machine, we are looking to produce slushies that are healthy (made from apple juice from a supplier that is HKA approved with a 4.5 Health Star rating), readily available and cost effective. The Slushie Machine will offer three different flavours at a price of $2.00 per 250ml cup. We realise that this is quite an increase in price from what we currently offer however we believe it will be of great benefit.”

Since the introduction in Term 4 2017, the slush puppies have been a huge hit and the kids just love them – especially on these hotter summer days.

If you have any feedback or comments regarding the change, please let us know!

Cheers and thank you

Kids (…and adults) Activities!

We said there was something for everyone at our Schoolyard Twilight Market & Movie Night and there is!

Drop by the “World’s Longest Colouring-In” table for all the little (and the not so little) Picasso’s.

You can even have your face-painted by the staff from the wonderful  Scaramouche!


Everyone these days loves a selfie so why not drop into our Photo Booth supplied by “In the Booth” Port Macquarie and pull some happy, funny faces! For just $3 you will receive a strip of 3 photos. You can even purchase more photo’s after the event as we will be

In the Booth Company Logo (1)

selling copies of all photos taken. Family nights are memory-making nights.

The brilliantly clever Eureka Explorers will also be at the market showing off some amazing STEM exhibits so don’t miss out their stall (and maybe, book the kids in for their Summer Vacation Program!).


And for those who like to hit the waves, come along and join Huddo from Port Macquarie Surf School and do some tarp surfing! Cool!

It’s the Guessing Competition of all Guessing Competitions … how many balloons can fit in the car? Hmmm… the fun is in the guessing and thanks to the wonderful folk at Harvey Norman Student Services the person who guesses the correct number of balloons (or has the closest guess) wins a Lenovo Laptop! Wow!

…And finally, there is the one and only special screening of “Boss Baby”!

We will be screening “Boss Baby” under the stars! Grab a blanket, a cushion or a low chair and join us. Prior to the screening of Boss Baby there will be a special 30-minute session of Just Dance where you can have a bop!

Tickets to the screening must be pre-purchased and are available online at Flexischools or by returning the Ticket Order Form (sent home last week) to the collection area in Year 6 Seating Area or the Canteen no later than Friday 10th November. Flexischools will remain open until 9:00 pm on Friday.

So, with all these activities, we are sure you will be entertained!

… only @ the schoolyard twilight market & movie night!



Working behind the scenes to bring you this event has been a very small group of sub-committee members who have convinced (well, maybe bribed) their partners to help.

To ensure the safety and success of this event we do require a little bit of volunteer help. We need at least four – five volunteers to help us out on the night.

We need volunteers to assist in the Canteen or on the BBQ. So, if you are free and don’t mind lending a hand, please let us know!


Looking for more information or simply want to lend a hand? Contact us!
