The canteen is open
Monday to Friday from 6.30am to 2.00pm. EFTPOS facilities are available for
students and the early start makes it possible for students to purchase breakfast
The canteen operates
under the guidance of Queensland Health and Education Queensland and has
implemented the Smart Choices Healthy Food and Drink Strategy at the school.
The canteen offers students two red food days each term with the rest of our
trading days offering green and amber foods only.
Green foods are an
excellent source of nutrients, are low in saturated fat, sugar and salt and are
chosen to avoid an intake of excess energy. Some green foods include
bread, cereals, rice, pasta, noodles, fruit, lean meat, poultry and eggs. Green
foods at the canteen are generally less expensive than amber foods that have
moderate amounts of saturated fat, sugar or salt.
Some examples of amber
foods at the canteen include full fat dairy foods, savoury commercial products,
processed meats, snack food bars, muffins, ice blocks and potato wedges.
All profits from the
Canteen are donated to the P&C and are used to finance various school
Students are encouraged
to discuss their dietary requirements with staff and special orders are catered
for, as requested.
