Food at School

At Manuka Primary School we encourage healthy eating.

We adhere to the National Guidelines for Healthy Eating in Primary Schools.

We are a water only school.

All non-compostable food and rubbish will come home again with your child. Please use reusable containers where possible.

No lollies are to be brought to school.

We discourage birthday cakes & treats thank you.

Brain Food

This is a quick five minute snack so just a piece of fruit, vegetables or cheese and crackers will do.

Drink Bottle

Your child will need to bring a drink bottle filled with water to school each day. Please make sure this is clearly named.


We have three adults on active supervision at each break.

The teachers wear a fluro vest and carry a bag with plasters etc.

“Cut your child’s packets in their lunch box so it is easy for them to open!”
