Canteen

The Tenison Woods College Canteen is available to Reception to Year 9 students.

The canteen operates within the Red, Amber and Green food guidelines.

Green foods should be eaten every day, amber foods should be eaten in limited amounts and red foods should be eaten occasionally.

Tenison Woods College has announced the introduction of Qkr! (pronounced - Quicker).

Qkr! is a free mobile app which allows parents and carers of students at Tenison Woods College to use their smartphones to place School Canteen orders.

The cut off period for School Canteen orders is prior to 9:00am on the day you wish to order. Any orders received at or after 9:00am will not be processed for that day and will prompt you to select another day to order. Orders will be delivered to classrooms as per normal for Reception - Year 5.

Year 6-9 Students do have the opportunity to purchase recess items online via the app. They will need to present themselves to the canteen to receive their Recess Order (or Lunch order, as per normal procedure of attending the Canteen for Order Collection for Year 6-9 Students).

This online order service is available for the School Canteen only (not the Sugarloaf Café). Once you have downloaded the App, you will need to register and search for Tenison Woods College. If you do not have access to a Smart Phone, orders can be made via the online Portal at https://qkr-mss.qkrschool.com/qkr_mss Orders Via App Store or Play Store are the preferred option for ease of use. 

Note: No refunds will be given. If your child goes home sick, the Parent / Carer will need to notify the canteen at their earliest convenience. The canteen will try to hold the order for another day where possible and if enough notice is given. If the Canteen is not notified by the parent / carer, the item/s will be forfeited.

For parents/carers who wish to volunteer at the canteen, the Volunteer Registration Process will need to take place and you can then contact Canteen Manager, Leanne Sandow to express your interest. When you are rostered on to work in the canteen, your start time will be 10.00am and finish time 2.00pm.

Tenison Woods College respectfully acknowledges the Boandik people are the First Nations people of the Mount Gambier South Eastern region of South Australia and pay respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, past, present and emerging.
