Dunsborough Primary Canteen


Welcome to the Dunsborough Primary School Canteen and Kitchen Garden. We embrace the principles of a sustainable school and slow food. We use produce from our own school garden and eggs from our very own chickens! We prefer local suppliers; minimize our packaging and try to use eco-packaging. We use our scraps for chickens, worms or compost. We cook as much as we can from scratch – yes! That means fresh muffins, biscuits, pasta bakes, home-made burger patties and more.

Our canteen is open every day!

All week we have a regular menu and on Wednesdays' special items are available.

Place your orders by filling in a bag and dropping it in to the canteen window or order online.

A yummy hot and cold selection of homemade goods are available for purchase at the canteen window for Morning recess

Don’t forget your name, class teacher and room number and please get your orders in by 9am!


All orders can be placed online, please place your order before 9am when orders close for the day.

Want to be sure we receive your online order? Our Online Canteen can email you to confirm your order(s).

Our Canteen Manager is Jeanine Baxter with support from Gabby, Jess and Alli. Our canteen needs 2-3 volunteers each day to help prepare morning teas and lunches and serve the children. It’s a great way to meet other mums and dads and your kids love to see you in the canteen. Any amount of help is appreciated. Please contact our canteen volunteer coordinator Jeanine Baxter on 0419 673 224 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Please note!

If a child has forgotten their money or lunch order or has no lunch, the Canteen Staff will organise lunch or recess for them. We are here to ensure no-one goes hungry! Please do not be offended if we send a note home asking for payment – we just want to be sure your child gets lunch!

Walk to School Days

We wish to encourage families to be active and healthy and each term the P&C hold a Walk to School Day. Three Walking School Buses collect children from predefined bus stops on predetermined routes and accompany them to School where a healthy “before school snack” is provided. Please refer to Walk to School Days under P&C Events for additional information on the Walk School Buses School Day including Walking School Bus Timetables.

Any assistance in the canteen is appreciated between 8am and 9am for the “before school snack” to prepare and serve toast and fresh fruit.

Cycle to School Day

We wish to encourage children to be active and healthy and at the start of each year  the P&C hold a Cycle to School Day. A healthy “before school snack” is provided for everyone who cycles to school. Anyone who can help in the canteen between 7:30am and 9am for the “before school snack” is welcome.

Easter Big Breakfast

The Easter Big Breakfast is held every year from 7am to the start of school hours on the last day of Term 1. We sell a selection of yummy treats for breakfast. Lots of help is needed in the canteen preparing and serving from 7am. The Library also holds an Easter Raffle to raise funds for the Library. Many children rate the Big Breakfast as highly as Christmas and Birthdays!
