The Roseworth Primary School Canteen
We have one paid employee, Jane Tairova, who manages the canteen five days per week and we have a number of highly valued volunteers who assist Jane to ensure that the canteen provides a well organised and professional service to our students. The success of the canteen is due largely to the commitment and support that Jane and her volunteers give us every day. We rely very heavily on this small group of P&C members and volunteers that support the canteen in its day-to-day operations. The Roseworth Primary School Canteen is operated by the Roseworth Primary School P&C and is open every day of the school week.
The Roseworth Primary School canteen has two menus from which our students can choose, Winter and Summer.
The canteen is also open at recess and during lunch time so that students can buy other food and drink items. There is always a great selection of healthy foods and drinks.
Hours of Operation
The canteen opens each morning for student orders at 8:35 am. This opening time coincides with the release of students from the undercover area each morning. Student orders need to be in before the start of school so that the canteen can begin the day’s menu. Recess and lunch times are very busy at the canteen so late orders are difficult to process.
Traffic Light System
The Roseworth Primary School canteen follows the "Traffic Light" healthy eating program.
RED Foods - Deemed unhealthy. These types of food do not appear on our menu.
AMBER Foods - Available in limited and quantity controlled amounts.
GREEN Foods - Encouraged eating and available at all times.
For more information www.det.wa.edu.au/healthyfoodanddrink has all the information about the Traffic Light system and will help you with good eating for packed lunches and meals at home.
The Roseworth Primary School canteen is a very valued service and the school is very pleased to be able to offer a healthy menu to our students. We expect every student and parent to use their best manners at the canteen and to treat the canteen staff and volunteers with the respect that they deserve. We are lucky to have such a great canteen at our school.
Can You Help?
Jane always needs new volunteers to help prepare food and serve the students during the day. Usually just a few hours every now and again is all that she requires. No experience or qualifications are necessary, just a willingness to help. If you would like to help Jane in the canteen or want more information about the canteen please drop in to the canteen and say hello.
It is very important to remember that all of the profits from the canteen go directly back into the school and many of the wonderful resources that the school can offer our students can be directly linked back to the canteen and to the P&C.
