To view the 2016 Canteen Menu, click below: At Sacred Heart Parish Primary School, the canteen is managed by a Canteen Convenor, who is responsible for the everyday running of the canteen. It is staffed by parents, grandparents and other caregivers who generously donate their time. At the beginning of each term, volunteers are invited to nominate which days they can assist in the canteen, either weekly, monthly or once a term. Assistance includes serving and preparing lunch orders. The canteen is open Monday to Friday 9am to 2pm. The canteen follows the NSW Fresh Tastes at School guidelines to ensure a healthy menu for the students. Twice a term, the school has a day when the students have the opportunity to purchase products not normally sold. Students are able to pre-order lunches, purchase snacks and drinks at recess and lunchtime.

Parent Group provides support for families of our school and coordinates fundraising activities throughout the year.

The Parent Group is always welcoming new members and provides a good way to get to know other parents.
School Assemblies Each Thursday of the school term, the school holds an assembly. It is held at 12:45pm in Marcellin Hall. This assembly allows the Principal, teachers, students and parents to catch up with all the school news for the week. At the assembly, birthdays for the week are celebrated and each class teacher awards one of their students a blue ribbon for outstanding work during the week. A different class hosts the assembly each week, with students announcing as well as performing for the rest of the school. In each assembly there is the acknowledgement of the traditional owners of the land, the national anthem, and a prayer. School Mass Each Monday morning at 9:10am, the school heads to the Cathedral to take part in a school mass. Each mass a different class is asked to host the mass and particular students are given special tasks. This school mass is a celebration of the part Jesus plays in our lives, not only within the school but within the whole community. Inclement Weather In the instance of extreme weather conditions (when the temperature is over 35 degrees and on rainy days) students may be required to stay inside for recess and/or lunch.
