Our Canteen is run by our FABULOUS Canteen Staff Becky McGowan, Anna Gowan and Kat Wadham as well as our wonderful volunteers.

The canteen is open every school day for morning tea and lunch orders as well as at lunch time for purchases over the counter. We have canteen made baked goods as well as yummy snacks and frozen treats including Frozen fruit and canteen 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.

Ready to volunteer?  Take a look at the latest Bush Telegraph newsletter to find our sign up link to volunteer for a shift. You can also email the canteen to ask for a link to our sign up sheet.

Shift Descriptions:

- 9 to 11.00am (Mon- Fri) Involves helping make/preparing the recess and lunch orders. 

- 12.30 to 1.30pm (Mon-Thur) Help serve at the counter. Help the children collect their lunches and serve lots of yummy snacks at the counter.

- 12.00 to 1.30pm (Friday) Help getting all the Friday lunches out and getting ready for busy Friday counter service. Fast paced but lots of fun.
