What we offer

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

Cafe Irrawang

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 canteen is staffed by a fully qualified chef Simon Hazley-Jones and assisted by voluntary workers.  Students should extend every courtesy to the parents and community members who generously give their time to help the school.

The Canteen is open from 8.15 am every morning.  Lunch may be ordered before school or at recess.  Students will form an orderly line, which will proceed under the direction of the teacher on duty. Senior students may merge from a separate line.  Pushing in or getting others to buy are not permitted.

Junior students will not be served during lesson time, except in special circumstances (Eg. during exams).

At recess and lunch, the area is supervised by staff.  Students are expected to carry out the instructions of staff.  Students who behave irresponsibly will be sent away from the Café area.

Because of the NSW Department of Health & WH&S issues, the canteen staff are unable to heat student's meals brought in from home in the microwave.

Parents that wish to volunteer to help the staff at the canteen can find more information on the Volunteering at our school page. 

Snack n Study (Homework Centre)

This event is held every Monday from 3.15-5.00pm. This is a great opportunity for students to seek help on assessments, homework and general study with help from the teachers. Afternoon tea is provided. Permission forms are available from Snack n Study
