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.

Online Order – Flexischools – Cut off time 9.30am

If you miss the cut off time and your child has no lunch please call the Canteen by 9:30 am.

Late Orders or Orders with Insufficient $

Your child will be given a $2 sandwich and a 50c fruit (+IOU if necessary, please pay promptly).

Please let your child know that if there is a problem with their lunch order they should bring it back to the Canteen immediately so we can put it right.
