Free and Healthy School Lunches

We are excited to be part of the free and healthy school lunches programme. Each child is provided with a free and nutritious lunch at school each day. If you child has any dietary requirements, please let Annette in the office know. Your child will still need to bring a morning tea snack.  

Water only School

Water is the healthiest, cheapest and most learning friendly drink available. Each child needs their own drink bottle which is kept in the class.   

Fruit in Schools

We are grateful to have Fruit in Schools. Each class has a fruit break in the first block of learning where there is fruit provided for each child.'s+School/@-41.2015721,174.9511647,17z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x6d4755702d7c9dcd:0xffc6fc0870cafc4d!8m2!3d-41.2013138!4d174.9529993
