The School canteen offers food service to students everyday:
Breakfast – 8:00-8:40am,
Break 1 – 11:00-11:50am

It is important for us to work in partnership with families to provide nutritious food and effective nutritional education to our students. St Peter’s are proud to have been one of the very first schools on the Central Coast awarded the NSW Department of Education, Healthy Canteen Strategy. This has increased the healthy food and drink options to more than 75% to make the HEALTHY choice the EASY choice for our students.
Being awarded the NSW Department of Education, Healthy Canteen Strategy has the following benefits:
- The students are being provided with the nutrients they need to develop into healthy adults.
- Preventing diseases associated with poor diet, such as anaemia, osteoporosis and obesity.
- Reducing the rate of obesity is important, as obesity is linked with many other social and psychological problems.
- The students are provided with the nutritional education that can assist with the development of lifelong healthy eating habits.
- Parent confidence in the quality of food and beverages sold in our canteen.
