The school canteen, known as the 'Food 4 Minds @ MPS', is run by a sub-committee of the P&C Association for the purpose of providing healthy and nutritional food for students and adults at the school. The canteen is open at recess and lunch time, three days a week (Closed Monday and Tuesday). Children in preschool may place a lunch order on Wednesdays, selecting from a special preschool menu via Flexischools. Children in Kindergarten to year 6 may place an order via Flexischools on Wednesday to Friday. Canteen price lists are published in the school newsletter, are available from the Canteen or on the school's website.
The school canteen managers are employed by the P&C Association. The viability of the school canteen relies on parents volunteering their time to assist the canteen managers. Any amount of time, no matter how limited or infrequent, is helpful.
Canteen prices are kept to a minimum, consistent with covering costs. The canteen is not run as a profit making enterprise but in the event that profits are made, they are utilised by the P&C Association to assist in improving the facilities for our children.
