Food at School
At Mānuka 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.
This is a quick five minute snack so just a piece of fruit, vegetables or cheese and crackers will do.
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!”
