Canteen Day - 5 November 2021

The daily efforts of our canteen staff and the many volunteers who support our students and our school have been tremendous this year. 

We should remember to say please and thank you every day, but on Canteen Day, Friday 5 November, we will say a very special thank you to this wonderful team. Our canteen provides a great service to fuel our students study and play.

We don’t take their hard work for granted, so thank you and Happy Canteen Day!


Classroom resources

Get the students involved this Canteen Day! We have created two worksheets that you might like to use to show the canteen staff and volunteers how much they are adored by the students. 

Worksheet 1: Spot the difference

Worksheet 2: Colouring in


Hang this poster around the school so everyone knows that it is Canteen Day.
