A compulsory school uniform policy, approved by School Council, helps the students identify with and belong to the school. Our uniform colours are green, gold and white.
Clothing can be purchased from our Uniform Shop. Representatives of the Parents’ Association run the Uniform Shop. Purchases can be made by completing an order form and lodge at the office. Uniform shop volunteers will process orders weekly and, providing the item is in stock, the order will be delivered to the students’ classrooms. Price lists and order forms can be collected from the Office or from the linked order forms.
Our Snack Shack operates on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
The menu emphasis is on healthy eating and the school won an award for the most improved canteen from the School Canteen Association for its improved menu. The menu is colour coded, RED for “occasional foods”, AMBER for “sometimes foods” and GREEN for “every day foods”. Students can have lunch orders on those days. Lunch orders are collected in the classrooms each morning. Stay tuned for our new healthy meal deals.
