For Parents - Lunch Orders & Snack Shack

Getting Our Kids Involved in Healthy Eating

Recess

Ripponlea Primary's school canteen, known as the Snack Shack, opened for business in the Barrbunin in 2011. It is a service provided by volunteer parents and Year 5 and 6 student helpers two mornings a week.

Snack Shack offers a range of healthy food such as popcorn, pretzels, apples, soup and raisin toast during recess on Wednesday and Friday. The menu changes slightly each term.

The Snack Shack Committee also co-ordinates one "special menu item day" each term, for example, fruit smoothies, hot muffins or hot soup. Gluten free, vegetarian and Kosher options can be catered for. This day is advertised in advance through the school newsletter and Skoolbag app.


Lunch

From 2016, Ripponlea Primary will be partnering with a new provider, Beaver's Tail, for school lunch orders.  This decision has been made so that families can access a lunch order service that is localhealthy and freshavailable every day and ordered online.

Simply log onto the Beaver's Tail website and place your order before 9.00am.  Pay with credit card or bank via PayPal.  Your child's lunch will be delivered to school.

Ripponlea Primary School's Healthy Eating Policy outlines our approach to foods consumed at school.

More information on the 'traffic light' system can be found at the DET Healthy Eating website.
