Ordering lunches

Lunches maybe ordered preferably by starting an account for your child\ren for on-line ordering at the flexi schools website or by placing a brown lunch bag with an order and money into the green bin (infants) and yellow bin (primary). These bins are located near the bus shelters and are collected after the start of class or around 9.30am, if your child is late to school they will need to bring their order to the canteen to ensure they get their lunch.

On a bag from home write your child's full name, class plus what the child is ordering with the amount written beside items. Place the money inside the bag, fold a few times and place in the lunch bins. PLEASE no staples or sticky tape! Any menu item may be ordered, if an ice-cream\ice block\milkshake is ordered the canteen staff will circle the item and write ‘collect' on the order bag. It is up to the children to bring the bag to the canteen to collect the circled item. Lunches and drinks (hot or cold) are packed in thermal bags and delivered ( by lunch monitors) to the classrooms.
