SSP's New Canteen Menu

Dear Parents

traffic2.jpg

The school’s Canteen is an integral part of the learning environment, and as such should operate in a manner that supports the health messages of curriculum.  

Our school is committed to providing healthier food and drinks for the school community by complying with the traffic light system as recommended by the WA School Canteen Association.  Under the traffic light system, food and drinks sold are classified into three categories - Green, Amber or Red.  These categories are based on their nutritional value, energy density and levels of saturated fat, added sugar, salt and fibre.

Our school’s Sustainability Project Team (staff and students) in consultation with our Canteen Managers and staff have been working hard over the past 18 months to make our Canteen more sustainable.  Special thanks here to Louise Bonciani (Pre Primary Teacher) who has led from the front and spent countless hours on this project.  

From the start of Term 3, St Simon Peter School will be launching a new and updated Canteen Menu (see link below) along with the introduction of more responsible and recyclable packaging.  The new menu will proudly display the traffic light system with many more healthier options available.  When selecting items to purchase from our Canteen, we encourage you to choose Green items over Amber or Red to support our whole school approach to Nude Your Food, Recycling and healthy eating.

We look forward to your co-operation on making our Canteen a better place for the planet!

Kind regards
Shane Baker
Principal

SSP Celebrates MJR Day

Wonderful celebrations were held last week to celebrate SSP and MJR Day.  It began with a beautiful Mass on Thursday, and was followed with class activities and stalls on Friday.  We were blessed with the weather which enabled us to continue as planned.

Between recess and lunch, classes rotated through activities based around Making Jesus Real (MJR).  These included searching with ‘magnifying glasses’ for God’s creation, making bookmarks, Christian meditation and making Spirit of Jesus bags.

After lunch we held our traditional stalls.  It was lovely to see so many family members joining us for these.  We thank everyone for their contributions to the stalls and acknowledge the Year 6 students who ran stalls as part of their Economics unit.  The money raised from these stalls supports Catholic agencies and causes close to our hearts.  Through the generosity of our community, we raised $4,270.00.  The Social Justice Committee will work with Miss Manifold in allocating the funds to worthy causes.
