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.
