Hello everyone and welcome to Maria Regina Catholic Primary School Canteen.
The canteen is managed by Marie Nero who has been co-ordinating canteens within the Diocese for 10 years.
The canteen is open Monday’s and Friday’s.
The canteen is a member of The National Healthy School Canteen Association “Healthy Kids” and is always focused on providing healthy and nutritional meals and snacks as well as always looking for new and improved foods and drinks.
To enrich our learning and understanding of the food’s requirements, we visit the annual Canteen Expo. Here, we compare our menus to other schools, update our food regulation law’s and see what new and exciting items become available to us.
All foods offered in the canteen come under the newly revised NSW National Healthy Canteen strategy guidelines. The updated policy states that ¾ of a school menu needs to be every day and ¼ of the menu needs to be occasional foods. Supported via the NSW government food finder, this allows us to check each product, brand, size and star rating of each food offered in our menu.
We cater to all dietary needs so if your child has an allergy, please ensure you have notified both the school office and the canteen. If your child requires special bread such as gluten free, please come and have a chat so we can work out a system for you. May we also suggest that you read through the menu and discuss with your child the items they will be able they able to have.
- At morning tea, we provide counter service only where children can come and purchase from a selection of items.
- At lunch time we provide over the counter service for all frozen items. These items are NOT available in lunch orders.
The canteen is online ordering only for lunches. Lunch orders can be placed through our on-line ordering system before 8.30am each day via the QKR app or at https://qkr.mastercard.com/store.
The canteen would not run without our wonderful volunteer’s support and time. If you would like to help us, we would love to have you on board. Please complete the volunteer form and send back to either the office or the canteen.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact or visit the canteen. Alternatively, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
