We are a nude food school – students leave food packaging at home and instead bring their lunch in a reusable container.
We are a proud nude food school.
This means that we ask that students to bring no food in packaging to school. There are no garbage bins at our school, so lunch wrappers and any rubbish brought in must go home!
We are a health promoting school and encourage families to make healthy choices for their lunchboxes. We encourage students to bring fruit, vegetables and water bottles in their lunch boxes every day. Chips, confectionery, fried foods and high sugar drinks such as soft drinks, energy drinks and flavoured mineral waters are not to be brought to school by children for eating at play/lunch time.
At all grade levels, a ‘healthy snack’ break occurs daily. Children are only allowed to eat fruit, vegetables and drink water at this time.
Any food scraps are composted to feed our hungry worms or go into general compost for the garden.
We encourage our families to use durable, reusable lunch boxes and containers as they may last from kinder through to high school and beyond, save money and the environment.
Lunchbox Sushi in Castlemaine will be working with the school to provide flavoursome, healthy sushi to the students.
Sushi rolls will be $3 each with 13 different flavours available, all of them being nut allergy friendly and many of them catering for vegetarian, vegan, dairy free and gluten free also!
Order forms available here or at the office, and are due in each week on a Thursday morning to the front office for Friday lunchtime delivery. Orders must be paid for in cash.
