Canteen News – Sherrian & Team Finishing Soon

Hi All

I am writing to let the community know that we will be finishing our tenure as operator of the Canteen at the end of this term.  Working at Canteen and serving the Collingwood College community has been rewarding and fun and enlightening but also exhausting.  Where else can you meet so many people, get to know their names and their eating habits (or coffee preferences in the case of teachers and parents), and occasionally get to play detective?!!  Please know that this difficult decision was made with regard to the welfare of me, my team and our families.

When our Expression of Interest was presented to the School Council, our mission was to provide fresh, nutritious food at affordable prices to the students, staff and parents of Collingwood College and I am very proud that this  remains our goal to this day.  It is also pleasing to be able to state that given the choice, students will choose fresh food over commercially packaged food (it didn’t take long for Beetroot Risotto to become a favourite!).

Our Principal, Dale Perichon, and the School Council have been very supportive of us as we have never been charged rent, power or gas for the use of the kitchen – it was a topic to be discussed once the Canteen became financially sustainable.  Please support Dale and the School Council in helping facilitate a smooth transition to the next operator of the canteen.

Thank you once again for supporting me and my team since the beginning of 2013.  I look forward to meeting you on the same side of the counter next term!
