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. We encourage orders to be placed using the QKR app - (online version). We have the option for counter sales for either cash or EFTPOS, however meal items are limited. 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:

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.
