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.

Our canteen has implemented the Healthy Canteen Strategy to provide nutritious food to the students and staff of our school on every school day.

The canteen operates on a self-serve basis and is open before school, at recess and at lunch.

Extra volunteers are always needed so if you can spare a couple of hours to help out it would be greatly appreciated. Volunteers are needed between 9.00am and 2.30pm, but if you could only spare a half a day it would help ease the pressure.

Please contact Kerrie at the Canteen on 02 4967 2985 on any school day if you would like to come along, enjoy a free lunch, meet someone new, have a laugh and enjoy a day away from the house in a quality school setting.

For more information please visit the Fresh Tastes @ School website.

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.

Learn more about the NSW Department of Education’s School Uniform Policy.

Our school uniform shop

School uniforms are available from the school Uniform Shop  situated just inside the main entrance of the school. Their phone number is 02 4967 7771.

Opening hours are:

  • Mondays 8:30am to 10am 
  • Thursdays 1pm to 3:30pm

Correct uniform must be worn at all times by students, unless advised by the school i.e. for some excursions or mufti days. Any jewellery and makeup worn must be safe and discreet.

A student who is not in uniform may be loaned replacement school uniform garments. Non-uniform clothing will be kept in the uniform clinic until the end of the day for students to collect. Loaned clothing items are to be return at that time. The discipline system, including detentions and monitoring cards can be used for students who are frequently out of uniform.

No student or family need be disadvantaged by these requirements.  The school has a Student Assistance Scheme to assist anyone in financial difficulties. Confidential applications should be made, using the forms available from the administration office.
