How Do I Order Canteen For My Child?

Paper Bag

  • Write your child’s name, class, and order on a paper bag.
  • Enclose the correct money and fold the bag securely (we will give change but it’s great if you can give us the correct amount).
  • Remind your child to place the order in the lunch basket in the classroom as soon as they get to school.  Their lunch will be delivered to the classroom just before the lunch bell.

If your child orders a fruit smoothie they will be given a token.  They need to take the token to the canteen to claim their drink.
