Rory's School Lunches is a locally based Catering & Canteen Management Company that provides fresh, healthy and affordable food offerings to numerous schools across South Australia.

Rory's School Lunches believes all students deserve healthy and nutritious food to support their growth and learning.

Rory's School menus have been designed to encourage healthy eating choices for students. The menus are also updated to keep them exciting for students and encourage them to try various foods. The below colour coding can help navigate our regular menu options:

Green Foods include foods that have lean cuts of meat, low-fat cheese or dressings, and are lower in saturated fat and sodium.

Amber Foods are processed more than green foods and may contain higher levels of fat, sugar and sodium. Students are encouraged to choose carefully from this selection.

Red Foods are highly processed, energy-dense and nutrient-poor. Red foods are an occasional food, so therefore you should limit your intake.

Out of School Hours Care (OSHC)

At St Mary’s OSHC, we aim to provide a home-like atmosphere that reflects our Catholic Dominican ethos. OSHC fosters flexibility in the service to meet the needs of families. Care can be regular or casual. The OSHC is staffed by a qualified and supportive team of staff who hold current National Police Clearance, First Aid training and Reporting Abuse and Neglect training (RAN).

The OSHC program will operate from the earlier dismissal time when College finishes earlier than the standard dismissal time due to ½ day school closures, staff meetings, or other school events. Extended care is offered on pupil-free days, with the exception being our Staff Retreat Day.

Please click here to view our OSHC Brochure which includes hours of operation and fee information.
