Water Only School and Healthy Food
Holy Cross Catholic Cross is a Water Only School.
Please provide a water bottle for your child to bring to school.
Promoting healthy food choices
Healthy food choices are important to establish in childhood to support the child's immediate physical and mental growth and development, and to set behaviours for the future.
We encourage and educate our students to be responsible for their own health.
We deliver clear and consistent messages about nutrition by:
ensuring that any food provided by/through school follows national food and nutrition guidelines
ensuring students get healthy brain food at 10 am
incorporating nutrition education across the curriculum, including the health programme
providing water as the only drink option for students
encouraging staff members to model healthy food choices
communicating our nutrition messages to the wider school community in various ways, including the newsletter
acknowledging the cultural diversity of our community with our nutrition messages
considering our nutrition messages when deciding on class rewards and celebrations, student prizes, fundraising activities, and school camp menus
actively promoting physical activity as the partner of good nutrition.
Our new entrant pack contains our nutrition message and tips for healthy lunches.
