Our school proudly runs a Healthy Eating Program for all of our students. Our full time chef, Tania, prepares nutritious meals and snacks daily and thanks to the generosity of our local sponsors the program is delivered free of charge to our families.
Breakfast is optional and is available every day from 8.30am until the bell goes at 8.50am. The daily menu consists of staples such as cereal, toast and fruit with Tania preparing a variety of extras such as porridge, bacon and eggs and pancakes.
Morning tea is delivered to classrooms. This menu changes daily but includes such things as muffins, dips, cheese, crackers, vege sticks, and cakes.
Lunch is served in our café from 12.20pm to 12.50pm. Class groups take turns to come to the café and are served a sit down meal. The menu changes daily and includes pastas, lasagna, sausage hot pot, chilli con carne, meat and veg and soups. Students especially enjoy days when they get to ‘make their own’ wraps, sandwiches or baked potato choosing the fillings and toppings they like. A BBQ is also a treat for special occasions such as the end of term.
Fresh fruit is available in classrooms for afternoon snacks.
Tania is able to cater to special dietary requirements and we ask that families notify us upon enrolment if their child has any allergies or intolerances.
We are grateful for the generous sponsorship through food and financial contributions of many local businesses. These donations allow us to continue this program at no cost to families. Our major sponsors are Plunkett Orchards who donate 700 pieces of fruit weekly and Foodshare, who distribute excess food from supermarkets.
The Lighthouse Project has been amazing at fundraising on our behalf.
Quicklift Cranes, Mooroopna Rotary and Mooroopna Kiwanis are among the many others who have helped to make this program a success.
