Ordering Online

Lunches can be ordered online via the Qkr! phone app.

Forgotten Lunches

If a student has forgotten their lunch, an IOU can be issued after a teacher or office staff member has signed an IOU form. Your child is then given a buttered OR vegemite sandwich. The IOU slip is sent home to the parent/caregiver and payment should be made the next day.

General Information

The canteen opens each day 8.30 am and closes at 1.30 pm.

The canteen is managed by the canteen sub-committee which is responsible to Highgate Governing Council. The manager is employed and volunteer helpers are needed to serve and prepare lunches. Offers of assistance are much appreciated and if you are able to help, please notify the canteen or respond to volunteer help requests in the school newsletter.
