Students should only be given money for their own use at the canteen and only on infrequent occasions. Canteen purchases should be a treat not an everyday occurrence. Time spent with lining up at the canteen at lunchtime is time away from socialising with friends. Please remind your child to not give their money to any child who may ask and that your child should not ask others for money or for friends to buy items for them. 

In addition, we have noticed recently the significant amount of ‘junk food’ students are bringing to school. Foods high in fat, sugar and salt are ‘sometimes’ foods and not to be eaten every lunchtime. Food should not be shared so large party pack size bags of potato chips are best kept at home.
