Our Canteen is open every school day for morning tea and lunch and run by our
FABULOUS Canteen Staff Mrs Robyn Lambley, Mrs Becky McGowan, Mrs Angi Olsen
and wonderful volunteers. 


Lunch and recess orders can only be placed online through Flexischools.

Recess and Lunch Orders

Please remember that you need to place separate recess and lunch orders if you want your child to have both recess and lunch. 


PSSA Orders

If your child is participating in PSSA you must select the PSSA option when ordering lunch  or your child's order will not be ready in time for them to leave for PSSA. 

COVID Restrictions

With the current COVID restrictions the canteen is only accepting Flexischools orders (no counter service).

We hope to welcome back volunteers in the near future.

Counter service is open for morning tea and lunch with baked goods made on site; Frozen treats are available at lunch time including frozen fruit and home made ice blocks.

Manly Vale Public School canteen  has been approved as a "Healthy Choice Canteen" by the NSW Govt. A healthy school canteen supports a 'whole-of-school' approach to student health and wellbeing, and reinforces healthy eating messages taught in the classroom. The NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy supports a culture of healthy eating in school by:

  • promoting and increasing student access to healthier foods and drinks

  • decreasing student access to less healthy food and drinks

  • supporting water as a drink of choice

  • making a healthy choice an easy choice.

We always welcome new volunteers to our canteen – mums, dads, grandparents and carers all welcome! Your child will love having you in the canteen while you provide a critical service for our school community and have a great day catching up on what is happening at school.

Note:  Unfortunately, for WHS reasons, no children are permitted in the canteen.
