The school canteen is open five days a week and provides a varied selection of food and drink that is healthy, nutritious and enjoyable. The canteen opens before school at 8:30am and closes at 2.00pm and is located beside our school hall. For convenience, we ask that all school lunches be ordered using our online service. You can go to www.flexischools.com.au .
ODPS fully supports the NSW State Government's "Fresh Tastes @ School" programme which ensures all government schools offer a healthy canteen service to students and staff. Under the Dept of Health initiative, all foods are given a colour coded rating, based on the levels of salt, saturated fats and sugars they contain. These products are classified as either:
Red foods - too high in sugars, fats and/or salt to be allowed on sale at the canteen every day,
Amber foods - foods that students should eat in moderation,
Green foods - the healthiest foods, low in sugars, fats and salt. These food items should form the bulk of the canteen menu.
All foods we prepare and sell are checked to make sure that they are either rated "Amber" or "Green" and as such, that we are providing healthy, fresh choices each school day at the canteen. The canteen does not use Peanut Butter or Nutella, however parents and students should be aware that there may be traces of nuts in other food products we sell.
