Five Years in a Row Canteen has Achieved a Five Star Rating

The canteen has again been awarded 5 Stars from The City of Whitehorse with a total assessment score of 100%. The canteen will  again be in the running to be awarded “Best Food Premises of the Year for 2016″ which will be determined early next year by the City of Whitehorse.

This is the fifth year in a row that the canteen has received 5 stars and the fourth year in a row that the premises have received a perfect assessment score of 100%.

The canteen is also helping students gain experience in the hospitality industry with its student volunteer program.  Through this program  students gain valuable work experience and learn customer service, food preparation and clean up, record keeping, and coffee making skills. The opportunity to learn in this practical way is proving to be really popular with the students.

Our school café is centrally located and provides easy access for staff and students. There is a spacious dining area which opens out onto an alfresco eating area with landscaped gardens, complete with a herb garden, fruit trees and courtyard seating areas for students. Blackburn High School has a “Healthy Eating” policy and students are encouraged to make healthy eating choices. Donna and Maria, Canteen Managers, are qualifed chefs.

Delicious, nutritious and homemade

A wide range of hot and cold, healthy alternatives are on offer, many of them made fresh each day by our café staff. Students can enjoy sushi, homemade soups, homemade pasta, focaccias, delicious wraps and sandwiches, homemade muffins, cakes and slices and delicious daily specials. Students can also enjoy hot chocolate, made by our very own barista and Lavazza coffee is available to Year 12 students and staff.

Students can make suggestions for daily specials if there is something in particular they like. The staff enjoy receiving feedback from students. To ensure they don’t miss out their favourite food, students can place an order at recess time and the order is ready for collection at lunchtime. Over the counter sales are available throughout recess and lunchtime.
