When your child enters the school, we extend an invitation for you to become involved in the school community through volunteering to The Buckley Bites, our school canteen.
Inevitably each year at The Buckley Bites we lose several of our valuable voluntary helpers as their children leave the school.
If you would like to volunteer your time to help out at The Buckley Bites and to build relationships with other parents please contact the Buckley Bites via the Office on (03) 9331 9999 or pop in and see the Buckley Bites Manager (Connie Zahra) at school.
Students should not consume food and drink in classrooms except when permission has been granted by a teacher (e.g. wet weather). Food must not be consumed in corridors, library and foyer, or in the toilet blocks at any time. Chewing gum is not permitted at school.

Nutritious foods and an active lifestyle will help achieve good health throughout life. Developing an awareness and understanding of healthy eating habits is a part of each student’s education.
At Buckley Park College parents, teachers and students work together to support a whole school approach to building a school culture in which students actively chooses nutritious food and a healthy lifestyle.
- The school curriculum program develops students’ understanding of the lifelong importance of healthy food and lifestyle choices.
- Food eaten at school contributes substantially to the student’s daily nutrient intake and also has a considerable influence in the development of their eating habits, growth patterns and energy levels. The food available at school supports this policy by modelling healthy food choices.
- The canteen provides a service to the school community and plays a vital role in providing and promoting a balanced selection of nutritious tasty and attractive foods.
