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 daily tuck shop called ‘Sensations Cafe’ where snacks and other treats can be purchased using cash.

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 the canteen at KGV.  Purchasing lunch gives students the opportunity to make choices and independently order and pay for their own lunches.  Weekly menus for the canteen can be found below.  Payment is 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.
