As part of making changes to the school canteen to bring it in line with the Education Department’s healthy food and drink policies, the building has also had a makeover.

“We were very lucky to have a talented parent come on board and donate their artistic skill to our goal of creating a bright, fun, inviting mural for our canteen,” volunteer canteen manager Jaye-anne Muir said.

She said the mural aimed to reinforce the school’s “green message” by incorporating cartoon fruits and vegetables.

A student competition was also held to name the new-look canteen.

Snack Shack will soon be added to the mural.

Ms Muir said the canteen was completely volunteer-run and was the P & C’s biggest fundraiser, with all net profits going back to the school.

Bunnings Whitfords donated all the materials.
