Canteen

The canteen is operated by Metro canteens and can be accessed before the College day, during recess and at lunchtime.

Metro Canteens believe students should be able to make choices. While they sell chocolate bars, carbonated drinks and some fried food, they also provide very healthy menu items that are available everyday for students to choose from. These items include:

  • Fresh sandwiches and roles with wholegrain and white breads (made daily on site)
  • Low fat yoghurts
  • Breakfast cereals
  • Whole fresh fruit in season (sold at below cost)
  • Fresh fruit salad
  • Low fat flavoured milks
  • Fresh fruit juices
  • Freshly made low fat pasta dishes
  • Assorted salad packs with or without lean meats

To help promote healthy eating choices they also follow the guidelines below:

  • No butter or margarine on sandwiches unless requested
  • No added salt during the cooking process
  • Low fat cheeses are used
  • Low fat salad dressings and mayonnaise are used
  • Dim Sims are steamed and not fried
  • No carbonated drinks or confectionary sold prior to 9am
  • All homemade items are promoted aggressively
  • Low sugar (lite) drinks are given optimum placement in fridges
  • Continuing our desire to reduce caffeine based drink sales (already down from 52% to 30%)
