General

Hunger Hut - School Lunches

  • A nutritious selection of healthy lunches is available for purchase daily.
  • Orders must be placed in the Information Centre before school.
  • Snacks for morning tea may be purchased at this time too.
  • It would be appreciated if money is in a sealed envelope with the child’s name and the order written on the outside.
  • A current menu and price list is available here.

Stationery

At the beginning of the year, stationery lists are distributed on the first day of school, which can be purchased from our school office.  Buying at the school means uniformity in exercise books and work materials throughout the school, as well as a small profit for the school from which all children benefit.  Click here for the Stationery Price List for 2016.

Money and Valuables at School

Parents are asked not to allow their children to come to school with money or valuables, as these things can be lost or go astray.  If  money is brought for school purposes, it must be in a named envelope and should be handed to the class teacher at the beginning of the day.
