Meals

Meals are provided at the Centre. A list of the menu is on display.

Each child will bring a fresh fruit everyday. Please don’t bring any chips, cake, or lollies as these cause problems between the children and later health problems. Keep them for birthday parties!

Fruits are for their morning tea and biscuits are for afternoon tea.
