Bally Bites Logo

Our not-for-profit Canteen is run by the Parents and Citizens' Association and is an integral service for Balgowlah Heighs Public School. Bally Bites is committed to high quality, healthy, whole and fresh eating.  

We have not only adopted the new NSW Healthy School Canteen Strategy, which focuses on increasing healthy food and drink options in school Canteens, but in the interests of our children's health we have additionally removed processed and frozen foods from the menu. All foods will now be made fresh from scratch each day and appreciate specific dietary requirements. Our children can now make healthy choices to fuel their minds and bodies, so healthy eating becomes a habit.

When are we open?

Bally Bites is open for recess and lunch five days a week throughout the NSW school year, excepting sports carnivals and other pre-notified days. Both campuses can make online lunch-orders via Flexischools up until 8.45 am on the day of the lunch order. Counter service is only available at the Western Campus (Grades 3-6) where the Canteen is located. 

Online ordering

To purchase your child's lunch via the Flexischools online ordering system, a parent or caregiver will need to register on the Flexischools website.

  1. Use any device and go to the Flexischools website.

  2. Click "Register Now!" and enter your email. You will be emailed a link to the online form. 

  3. Choose your own username and password and enter your contact details. 

  4. For each child click "Add a Student" and follow the prompts to place an order. 

The Flexischools system operates like the road toll system. After you have registered and pre-pay an amount to your account, the total of your lunch order will be reduced every time you place an order. The system will prompt you to top up your account when it reduces to a certain dollar amount nominated by you. VISA or Mastercard payments are preferred. A standard order fee is approximately 30¢ per order. If you need help, you can call Flexischools on 1300 361 769.

If you would like to volunteer in the canteen please contact Sanja Vidaic & Kathrine Baulderstone via email

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.
