Healthy Schools Achievement Program

Our school Council, leadership and staff have made a shared commitment to create a school environment that promotes a healthy eating and healthy lifestyle culture. We are working together to support this whole school approach and we want you as parents/carers to celebrate our successes along the way.

We have partnered with Sunraysia Community Health Services who are working with us to achieve the many steps in becoming accredited in the Healthy Schools Achievement Program. The aim of the program is to improve the health and wellbeing of students, staff and the wider community. This partnership will assist us to move through the process and connect the achievement areas to what we are already doing and what we need to do to promote healthy eating and lifestyle. The school’s canteen and curriculum programs will be complementary throughout with a whole school approach to nutrition.
We recognise that the canteen has an important role in the provision of food to our students. Renae in our canteen has been very busy updating her menu and ensuring her recipes fit into the program’s dietary guidelines. To create her recipes Renae only chooses products that are fresh and nutritious. She has also been creative with the presentation and preparation of the entire menu selection. We can now celebrate that our canteen menu only contains foods in the Everyday (Green) and Select Carefully (Amber) categories.
