Important allergy notice

We operate inclusive services that educate and care for children with a range of additional support needs. We have a number of children enrolled across our services with food intolerances and allergies, ranging from mild to severe, or in some cases life threatening anaphylaxis. Similar to most schools, we are allergy aware and do not allow children to bring in foods that may trigger an allergic reaction of any sort (for example, all types of nuts).

During the School Holiday Program, please be mindful of the food that you are packing in your child/ren’s lunch box. We encourage you to pack a healthy morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and water bottle as well as ensure that your child/ren have a sun-safe hat, enclosed shoes and appropriate clothing on.
