The new St James’ Anglican School Canteen is up and running! After moving from the Chapel to the old Administration Building, the new facilities are helping our dedicated staff prepare round 150 fresh lunches daily. With this number increasing every day, the new walk in cool room, two large ovens and new large commercial stove are getting a real workout! The Canteen’s aim is to provide a cost effective, financially self-sustaining food service, with every menu item being made from scratch with fresh local, seasonal produce.
Now located more central to the whole School some lucky ELC students are able to experience collecting the class lunches, and Senior School students are enjoying coming into the Canteen at recess and lunch to pre-order or purchase drinks and healthy snacks.
It looks like an exciting year ahead for the Canteen as we encourage long term healthy eating habits amongst the school community.
