Why we have a limited menu

Many parents have contacted us about our menu this term (Term 4) to query the limited menu. The short answer is – a typical full menu is logistically impossible right now!

The long answer is that the staggered recess and lunch times, which are in place to help keep children and teachers safe, would require us to organise orders at four different timeframes through the day – starting from 10am and going to 1:15pm. It’s an extended day and we just don’t have the volunteers – or space – to manage it.

We’d like to give a huge THANK YOU to Team Canteen and to every teacher for managing the new restrictions so well. Teachers have been collecting the lunch and recess baskets from the canteen. Amy, Kathryn, Catherine and Libby, along with our wonderful volunteers Bec and Emily, have worked SO hard to keep the canteen running as smoothly as possible under these disrupted conditions.

We’re hoping that the start of 2022 sees a return to a more normal environment so that we can introduce a full summer menu!

A couple of menu updates:

  • Birthday Baskets can still be ordered, and for safety reasons, we individually wrap each item in the basket.
  • We’ve brought back Pie Day Friday, so the kids don’t miss out too much.
  • Sushi has been removed from the menu because it dries out. Not exactly very appetising.

Thank you again for your understanding during these unusual times. We really appreciate your support.
