The canteen strives to provide a variety of affordable, nutritional food and to recognise food customs of all students and staff. Healthy lunches and snacks are important for children and help with concentration and learning. Healthy eating changes are not always easy to make and we encourage children to be involved in their own lunch preparation, and their choices about foods to include.
A number of families rely on the canteen to provide lunches every day, while others allow lunch orders as an occasional treat. Lunch orders may be filled in by parents and sent in from home, or students can purchase directly from the canteen, making their own choices about what food and drink they will buy, and when.
As they become older more of the responsibility for selecting food should pass over to the students.
There is one canteen at the Taylors Lakes Campus, and one at the Keilor Campus. Year 10-12 students at Keilor Campus have their own cafeteria.
