Children are encouraged to bring their own lunch from home. Pupils are not permitted to leave the school grounds to buy lunches. Mt Roskill Primary School is an Enviro School and children are taught how to recycle and re- use items for a more sustainable future. We encourage parents to put lunches in to lunch boxes and keep the use of gladwrap and other non- recyclable items to a minimum.
Parents who would like to order lunch for their children can do so from an online provider. Food can be ordered up until 9.00 am only. Lunches are prepared offsite and delivered to school. Lunches can be ordered either by visiting the website www.ezlunch.nz or by text 022EZLUNCH (022 395 8624).
No Lollies at School
We try to promote healthy eating and drinking and therefore do not allow lollies, chewing gum, chocolate, fizzy/energy drinks at school. While birthdays are a special time, unlike many preschools, we do not allow parents to bring birthday cakes or presents for other children. Occasionally teachers may organise a shared lunch for the class. In this instance a notice will be sent home in advance advising parents.
