New Year, New Canteen!!

Hi All,

I am really excited to let you know that the Canteen at Collingwood College will be open from 8am weekdays offering breakfast, morning tea and lunch to students, staff and friends of the school.

As you may know, Collingwood College asked for Expressions of Interest for Canteen Operator.  Our submission was reviewed and, after several meetings, was accepted.  We would like to acknowledge Errol’s contribution in providing Collingwood College with nutritious meals and tasty treats for students and staff in prior years and wish him well in the future.

The Collingwood College Canteen team consists of myself, Sherrian Poon, Mai Nguyen and Gary Poon (my brother).

Our aim is to offer meals that are fresh and nutritious.  We have chosen suppliers who can provide us with fresh, seasonal fruit and vegetables, halal certified chicken, beef and lamb, and fresh bread.

We will also be implementing a lunch order system for the primary school students whereby students can pre-order their lunch (by 10am on the day).  Lunch orders will be placed in baskets according to grade ready for collection at lunchtime.  We will be using paper noodle boxes, and containers, spoons and forks made from sugarcane for lunch orders, which can then be composted together with green waste.  At this stage, we cannot offer an online ordering system.

A Canteen Committee, consisting of parents, staff and students, will report directly to the School Council.  We will be meeting regularly with the Canteen Committee to ensure we are meeting the school’s expectations.  As we are new Canteen Operators, we welcome suggestions and feedback.

Please find attached the menu we will be offering for the second week of school (Monday 4th Feb to Friday 8th Feb).  We will forward a copy of the menu guideline for the rest of Term 1 shortly.
