We encourage healthy eating choices for recess and lunch times. Students are asked to pack healthy food in their lunch box. Sandwiches, cheese slices, carrots, hard-boiled eggs and fruit such as apples, grapes, bananas and mandarins are popular choices with our kids. The Child and Youth Health site has more ideas, as does Nutrition Australia's healthy lunch guide.
Chips and confectionery are not considered healthy food options and are only allowed within reason on special occasions e.g. class party. Students are not allowed to bring soft drinks or glass bottles to school. The school has old-fashioned drinking taps that are ideal for kids.
