Our aim is to have food options for all of our school community so if your child has special dietary requirements, please visit the Canteen and have a chat to see if we can cater to you.

How to order lunch

Our canteen uses the FlexiSchools online ordering system. FlexiSchools is a fast and secure way to order and pay for canteen. To take advantage of this convenient service, visit at and follow the prompts to register your account.

If you prefer a ‘hard copy’ lunch order, these can be dropped into Oishii Canteen before 10am. Alternatively, your child can pop their lunch order into their classroom lunch order box in the morning when they arrive at school. When ordering please write the following information clearly on a brown paper lunch bag:

  • Child’s name
  • Child’s class
  • Order
  • Order total 
  • Please enclose exact change (if possible)
  • If you don’t have a bag, don’t worry – just write your child’s order on a piece of paper or envelope and add an extra 10c for a bag.

Snacks, Frozen items and Drinks can be purchased over the counter at recess and lunch without an order.
