The school canteen is managed by the Blackburn Lake Primary School Parents Association, so is completely volunteer managed.
The school canteen operates during the first half of lunch-time on Monday and Friday during term time, closing at 1.30pm, and offer simple snack foods for students, to complement their home-brought lunches. Items on sale include, ice-creams and icy-poles, chips and drinks.
For prices on the items available at our school canteen, please see our Canteen Price List here: Canteen Price List. (Canteen price list is current as of February 2023).
Please note, it is school policy that students can not share food, nor can students purchase items for other students. Please do not give your child extra money to purchase items for their friends.
Students are allowed to purchase one food item and one drink item at a time. They can return to the canteen once they have finished eating their first purchase.
The canteen ALWAYS needs parent/guardian volunteers, and the canteen cannot operate without you. If you would like to volunteer to serve on the school canteen on Monday and/or Friday (approx 12.30-1.40pm), please register your interest here: Volunteering

Delivery of Lunch Orders
Classroom Cuisine will deliver lunch orders just before lunch-time to the school canteen. Students are then sent to the canteen to collect their own lunch order (so please make sure your child is aware that they have an order to collect).
