What we offer

Each school in NSW offers something slightly different depending on the community. Here's what we offer for you.

Canteen

All canteens in NSW public schools must meet certain requirements. These include providing more healthy food and drink options – to make the healthy choice an easy choice for students. Visit Healthy school canteens to learn more.

Westmead Public School welcomes A&D Kallimanis Catering who successfully tendered for operation of our school canteen licence commencing Term 3, 2020.

Their menu meets the NSW Healthy Canteen Guidelines providing a variety of foods that include vegetarian, halal and gluten free options. The canteen service complies with all Department and AHPPC guidelines for operation during COVID19 and local council Food Safety and Handling Guidelines.

LUNCH ORDERS must be placed before 9.00am

Whilst physical distancing measures are in place at our school there will be no over the counter ordering by parents/carers. Students take their lunch order to the canteen before school.

How do I order lunch for my child from the canteen?

·       Write your child’s full name, class and food order on a paper lunch bag

·       Include the amount required – exact amount is preferred

·       Write any food allergies on the bag

·       Have your child submit their lunch order at the canteen by 9.00am

Uniforms

When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.

Students, teachers, parents and carers, as well as members of our local community helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation

  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics

  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities

  • is suitable for all body shapes.

Uniform Information includes requirements, price list and uniform shop hours.

The parent body decided that school uniform should be worn at Westmead PS. It gives the children a sense of belonging to the school community. Many visitors comment on the neat and tidy appearance of students at our school. The school appreciates the role that parents play in ensuring that uniform is worn.
