The College canteens run on a non-profit basis. The canteen at the Darlington Campus, the Gum Leaf Café, is managed by Mrs Kylie Beks. The canteen at the Glen Forrest Campus is managed by Mrs Annette Bottrell and her assistant, Mrs Lea Gooch. Both canteens operate with the generous assistance of parent volunteers.
The College canteens support the health messages of the curriculum: menus are consistent with the recommended nutritional guidelines for WA school canteens. Both canteens use the ‘traffic light’ system, classifying food and drinks based on their nutritional value, energy density and levels of saturated fat, added sugar, salt and fibre. Most daily menu choices are based on the core food groups and are predominantly classified ‘Green’, with some classified as ‘Amber’ – no ‘Red” items are sold at either canteen.
