What we offer

Each school in NSW offers something slightly different depending on the community. Here's what we offer for you.

Canteen

All canteens in NSW public schools must meet certain requirements. These include providing more healthy food and drink options – to make the healthy choice an easy choice for students. Visit Healthy school canteens to learn more.

The School Canteen is open from 8.20 to 9am Monday to Friday on both Caroline St and Kingsgrove Road. Lunches are ordered directly from the school canteen on each site before 9am. Food and drink can be purchased at the canteen before school, at recess and lunch breaks.

Canteen menus can be viewed online by going to Mel's Tasty Bites.

Uniforms

When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.

Students, teachers, parents and carers, as well as members of our local community helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation

  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics

  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities

  • is suitable for all body shapes.

School uniform management:

Students who do not wear correct school uniform need to bring a letter of explanation from a parent/caregiver. Students not in uniform will be unable to leave the school to participate in any excursion or to represent the school in a sporting team.

Where a student arrives at school out of uniform and with no explanation parents may be contacted to bring a uniform to the school. Repeated and unexplained failure to meet school dress requirements will result in parent letters and interviews.

Families who are experiencing financial difficulty in obtaining a uniform for their child may apply for assistance or view pre-loved clothing at the office.
