It is imperative that you alter your child's class group on your online canteen profile. Also, once you place your online order, check your “active orders" section to ensure that your order has been captured correctly. We are having increasing numbers of children coming to canteen without orders being placed. This is causing distress for the children.
Any queries regarding all other canteen issues please contact Pip Kent on 0439 091300.
