Canteen

The College provides canteen facilities for all students during the recess and lunch breaks.

MacKillop Catholic College have partnered with Custom Catering to manage our Canteen. All orders will need to be placed using the QKR app - (online version). We have the option for counter sales, however meal items are limited. The Canteen will be transitioning to a cashless facility and again we encourage use of the QKR app or Eftpos facilities available. Please note that no credit will be given to any student. All QKR and Eftpos transactions will appear on your bank statement as “Custom Catering”. You can find a user guide on how to download the QKR app below:

ALL FAMILIES wishing to make purchases from our Canteen in 2021 via the QKR! App will need to log on to https://www.mackillop.tas.edu.au/utility/canteen, and register your child/children’s details. This applies to all new families and ALSO to families who have used QKR! App in the past. Updating your child/children's details on QKR! will ensure that their new class details can be captured. This will enable our Canteen staff to easily distribute purchased items to our students in bulk. Thank you everyone for your ongoing support!

Students with Allergies

In recent years we have experienced an increase in the number of students with various allergies. It is important that the College has the most up-to-date medical information on students in order to provide for their needs. Please ensure our College Office is informed if there is a change of medical information so we can note this in our records.

At present we do have a large number of students with allergies to nut products and ask parents to help us by avoiding nut products when packing student lunches.

We do strive to be nut free. However, the strong recommendation for secondary schools is that we look at educating all students about the concerns regarding nut allergies and train students to make good choices rather than banning products. Like the disclaimer on food products, we can never claim to be “nut free” with over 600 people accessing our site each day.
