Our Canteen is open daily and supplies a selection of healthy lunches and snacks for students. We follow the 'Right Bite' Guidelines as part of the college Healthy Eating Policy.


Qkr! - Cash-Less Canteen Ordering

Qkr! is a safe, secure and reliable way to pay for your recess and lunch

Our Canteen offers Qkr! (pronounced 'Quicker') as an easy to use, secure phone app for making canteen payments from your mobile phone.

Parents and caregivers may order their child's recess and lunch all without the worry of children using cash at the counter.

Qkr! will accept payment using any credit/debit card (except American Express) and has a simple checkout function. 


  • Cash lunch orders are not available through the Canteen.  Cash will only be accepted at recess and lunch for snack items e.g. ice blocks.
  • Orders must be placed through the Qkr! app by 8.55am of that day.
  • Recess orders can be collected via the Canteen roller shutter on the day.
  • High school aged students (Years 9 - 12)  wishing to order via the app must collect their order via the Canteen roller shutter on the day.
  • All other students (Rec - Year 8) will continue to receive their lunch order via their class Canteen box.

Canteen orders must be made by 8.55am on the day.

What happens if my child will be absent and I have ordered?

Please cancel the order via the Qkr! App.  You will receive a credit on the app.

Our canteen begins processing orders from 8.55am and is unable to see if your child is unexpectedly absent from school. Therefore, any orders not cancelled are processed and, when not collected by the end of lunchtime, are generally disposed of.  Please note: families will not receive a credit in these circumstances.

Our aim is to ensure is to ensure that families are not out of pocket and to minimise food wastage.


Parent and school community volunteers are welcome to assist the Canteen operator.  If you feel that you could spare some time each month, please contact the College.  For further information on volunteering, please refer to opportunities to be involved
