Absence from school

If a child is going to be absent from school, parents need to inform the office and class teacher as soon as possible.  Parents with children travelling on school buses also need to inform the bus escort and the PTA Coordinator.

Snack and Lunch Time Arrangements

All classes take their snacks and lunches in their classrooms and occasionally have snack time in the outdoor learning area.  All students need to bring their own snack and drink/water bottle to school.  Please ensure that all containers are clearly labelled with the child’s name.

Students run a tuck shop once per week on Tuesdays and there is a mobile snack cart ‘Snacks on Wheels’ (run by Jade class) on Wednesdays and Fridays. Students can purchase snacks and other treats on these days.

There are a number of options for healthy eating at JCSRS.  All students are encouraged to bring a healthy packed lunch from home.  In accordance with specific IEP targets and through individual negotiation with the teacher or therapist, some students can purchase their lunch from either our own Sensations Café or the canteen at KGV.  Purchasing lunch gives students the opportunity to make choices and independently order and pay for their own lunches.  Menus for both can be found below and are updated regularly.  Payment is by cash at Sensations and via ‘Octopus’ card at KGV.  A local subscription based delivery service (The New Luncher) is also available, providing healthy meals to school on a daily basis.
