Do you have a healthy canteen?

The canteen is operated by a company called Made Fresh each day and aims to provide healthy food choices for children. Lunch orders are available Monday to Friday. A menu with price list is available through the SkoolBag app.

Just a reminder that children should not have large amounts of money at school. Students are not permitted in the canteen due to Work, Health and Safety regulations. For more information please refer to ‘Healthy Canteens’ which is located on the NSW Health website:

Is there an anti-bullying policy in place at the school?

At St Michael's we believe that all members of the community have the right to a learning and working environment free from intimidation, humiliation and harm. We all share a responsibility to create a culture of caring which will not tolerate bullying. We believe that bullying must be taken seriously and is not acceptable in any form. In witnessing Christian values we reject ideas, beliefs and behaviours, which marginalize or victimize people.
