Canteen News Week 6 Term 2 – 30 May 2017

Missing Lunches:  at present we still have a few children who have lunches going to their 2016 class.  Please make sure you update your Munchmonitor details to include PSSA, 2017 Classes, allergies, daily snack allowance and remember to top up your accounts.

Also, if your child comes to school without adequate recess or lunch, they will be sent to the school office by their class teacher to get a ‘green note'.  We are only permitted to give them a piece of fruit at recess or a basic sandwich at lunch (vegemite, jam or honey).  They will then bring the note home and you are required to send the money back to the office with the green note at your earliest convenience.

Remember to check the school website or the Skookbag app for the Volunteers roster.


Thank you

Canteen Newsletter - END OF YEAR - Week 8 Term 4 2016

As the end of 2016 if fast approaching, please note:

Year 6 – use all your money and $'s up off your Munch Monitor unless you have siblings.

And, those leaving the school the same applies, please use all your money on your Munch Monitor.

This week will see the end of the monthly specials – we will have a clearance in the last two weeks of school of anything that we need to get rid of.  Also note, if something is unavailable on the Munch Monitor please DO NOT duplicate a previous order – if unavailable … this means we Do Not have it on hand!

A huge thanks to all who have helped out this year and we look forward to seeing you again in 2017.

If you have not received your invitation for the Christmas Party, please call me on 9858 5286.

May I take this time to wish all of our Deno families a happy and safe festive season and look forward to seeing you all in 2017.

A huge thank you to all those who have helped out this year, our efforts have been very much appreciated.

This will be our annual Canteen Thank You Dinner … you will receive your invites this week (via your child).  Hope to see you all there!


Canteen News

As we approach the end of 2016 please note we will be doing regular lunch orders for students right up until the last week of school (Friday 16 Dec), however some items may RUN OUT before the last day and as we clear out all our fridges and freezers they may be substituted with other items.

Please note:  if an item shows ‘unavailable' through Munch Monitor when you are trying to order, then it means we don't have it, so please do not duplicate your previous order.  Hopefully we will be able to please most of the children.

Year 6 … You are leaving, please make sure you use ALL your money on your Munch Monitors BEFORE you leave at the end of the year. 

REMEMBER …. Friday LUNCHES … if your child plays tennis or is in a PSSA team they CANNOT order lunch as they have already left school before lunch time.

Winter Specials

Apologies but … due to the high level of ‘Nachos' orders daily, we have had to ‘cap' the number of orders to 60 per day, as we cannot get them all out for lunch if there is more.  Please DO NOT try and order these through Munch Monitor if it tells you "Not Available" on the day, as it means we have reached our quota for the day.  I know this is disappointing but due to the high numbers this is what we have to do.

The other Winter Special for this month is – Roast Veggie Pie – available daily for $3.20.

K-2 Sport Carnival:  is being held at Dunbar Park on Friday 9 September.  The Canteen will be CLOSED  for ORDERS & SERVICE on that day, as we are at the Carnival.

Sausage Sizzle Orders due Friday 2 September.
