Food at School 

Healthy Eating at Newmarket Primary School

The school has a Healthy Eating policy for children.   Please reduce plastic and packaging in lunchboxes - we are an EnviroSchool..  Avoid unnecessary sugary foods - students need energy not to be lathargic from eating too much sugar. 

If your child forgets their lunch, they will be directed to the staffroom for a basic sandwich and an apple. No child will be left hungry. We are a water only school. 

Note: There are a lot of children who eat all their lunch at morning tea time and then have nothing left at lunchtime - are you providing enough food for your child? Please check  in with them them regularly.

We encourage children to bring uneaten food home.  Some children are not hungry at lunchtime.  Please check in with children about how much food they need.
