The Canteen is managed by a BNPS employed Canteen Manager and a committee of volunteer parents – a Sub-committee of the School Council. The Canteen is staffed by volunteers – parents, grandparents and friends of the students and their families.
The Canteen operates on a small profit margin with all profits going to provide a source of funding for the school. Past profits have gone towards an Early Years Literacy Program, a printer for the Computer Lab, air conditioning, equipment for the science program and many other benefits to the school and students. Being able to contribute to school funds and still offer moderate prices is only made possible through the support of our greatly appreciated volunteer helpers.
If you would like to find out more about how the canteen operates, for example, formulating and pricing the regular menu, planning ‘Special Lunch’ days, evaluating possible seasonal additions to the menu and liaising with the Australian Schools Canteen Association (who set canteen’s food guidelines), please feel free to come to a meeting or even join the committee.
Meetings are held once a month (usually from 2.30pm to 3.30pm) – please ring Jenny in the Canteen on 9589 5449 (via the Office) for the date of the next meeting.
