Our Environmentally Friendly Canteen

Our Environmentally Friendly Canteen

As well as our new menu, we have also changed our packaging. Everything that now comes out of the canteen is either recyclable or completely compostable on site.
We are building a composting area near our chicken yard and all our lunch order packaging will be placed in this area.
We are heading towards lowering our carbon footprint and we have the initiative of our Wonderful West Kids to thank. They asked and we have made it happen.
Our bio packaging includes the following:
• Paper straws
• Bamboo cutlery
• Paper bags including all order bags, hot dog
bags, sandwich bags and nuggets.
• Our pasta, rice, snack pack and corn chips
containers are all made from sugar cane

The bus will leave from the car park at Mansell Reserve at 8:25am. We will travel along Ontario Avenue, then turn into Ninth Street and make our way to school. Mr Hall will be accompanying the walking school bus. Any parents/carers or siblings wanting to walk with us are most welcome.

School Times

School Times – Important, please take note. All schools have agreed times that parents and students must abide by. 8.30am – Children cannot be at school before 8.30. Classrooms are open at this time. 3.15pm – Children MUST be picked up at this time. Lately we’ve had many children left at the office for a long period after this time. This is unacceptable – teachers are in meetings and office staff are unable to take care of children left waiting for long periods of time. Parents/Carers, PLEASE respect this times.
