Each school in NSW offers something slightly different depending on the community. Here's what we offer for you.
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.
Canterbury Boys High School's canteen provides a range of healthy eating options for our growing boys!
Students are reminded that food from external sources (for example, McDonalds, pizza, kebabs and other such items) cannot be 'dropped off' at school as students have access to the food at canteen. Students do not have permission to leave the school premises and get food during their break times.
We respectfully request that parents do not bring take-away food for their child during break times as this is a breach of school expectation and may not adhere to the NSW guidelines for schools. Parents are of course welcome to bring the school's administration office money for the school's canteen or food from home for their child. This will be passed onto your child at the end of their scheduled lesson.
Thank you for your cooperation.
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.

Please note that if students continually breach the school uniform code parents/carers are informed and requested to intervene. If there are further concerns parents/carers will be contacted to bring the correct uniform to school.
