The school canteen follows a Traffic Light approach to healthy eating. Foods are categorised into RED (not healthy), AMBER (limited health value) and GREEN (healthy) foods. Red Light food is not included on our canteen menu and there is limited Amber food. Green food is the predominant food choice offered.
Our canteen menus are changed regularly providing students from Pre Primary to Year 6 with the opportunity to order from a selection of winter and summer menus.
The Ballajura Primary School canteen is managed by Bev Wilkes and Melissa Payne and is staffed by volunteer parents. Situated within the undercover area, the canteen is open four days per week (Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday). To order lunch, students can write their orders on paper bags enclosing the money and handing it to the canteen before school starts. Alternatively parents can order lunches using our online canteen facility by registering at www.ouronlinecanteen.com.au. Orders can be placed up to 2 weeks in advance which means you never have to hunt for spare change again!
The canteen is always looking for assistance and the canteen staff are happy for parents or family members to volunteer. If you are able to assist, please contact our Secretary, Melissa Payne on 9338 2221 or firstname.lastname@example.org
