What we offer

Each school in NSW offers something slightly different depending on the community. Here's what we offer for you.

Canteen

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.

The canteen is operated under the guidelines of the Healthy Kids Program, as directed by the NSW Canteen Association. It is available Monday to Friday.

This program categorises food using the 'Traffic Light System' and dictates all food sold in NSW School Canteens. Emphasis is on fresh food and New Lambton Public School is a supporter of this.

Preparing fresh food can be time consuming and we must rely on parents to help.

If you are able to volunteer some time in the canteen, please contact our Canteen Manager.

The students can shop at recess from a daily selection of approved goodies. For lunch, students come to the canteen before school and order. 

For students with allergies, please feel free to see our Canteen Manager, Sam and together check labels and ingredients of food on the menu.

Please check our canteen menu for more information. 

Uniforms

When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.

Students, teachers, parents and carers, as well as members of our local community helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation

  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics

  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities

  • is suitable for all body shapes.
