Healthy Eating

Our not-for-profit canteen is run by the Parents and Citizens’ Association and is an integral service for Balgowlah Heights Public School.

As early adopters of the NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy (which is now compulsory in all NSW public schools) we have long had a commitment to providing our children with healthy choices to fuel their minds and bodies, so healthy eating becomes a habit.  The vast majority of our food is made from scratch on-site.

For more information on canteen requirements in public schools, please visit


The canteen is located on the Western Campus of the school.  The canteen is open at recess and lunch 5 days a week throughout the NSW school year, excepting sports carnivals and other pre-notified days.

All children can order recess and/or lunch via the online ordering system Flexischools.  You can visit the website: or download the Flexischools app and follow the instructions to get set up. 

All lunch orders must be placed via the Flexischools online ordering system.

Please note that there is a separate tile on the Flexischools app for Friday’s lunch menu. 

All orders must be placed by 8.30am on the day of the order.


Our success in providing the children with home-made healthy food is reliant on volunteers. You do not need to have any cooking skills – there is always plenty to do, whether it be pouring juice pops or serving at the counter at recess and lunch. 

You will be a valued member of the school community as a volunteer, and you’ll have the pleasure of seeing your child(ren) as well as enjoying a free lunch.

We look forward to welcoming you in the canteen soon.

All canteens in NSW public schools must meet certain requirements. These include providing more healthy food and drink options – to make the healthy choice an easy choice for students. Visit Healthy school canteens to learn more.
