While we support walking to school as a means of improving fitness, Council also works with our local schools to ensure the canteens meet the best possible standards. Not that we’ve ever had to take any drastic steps due to the commitment to health and cleanliness of the schools and the parents and carers who help in the canteens.
However, Council undertakes inspections of the school canteens in the same way as we inspect every food handling operation in the City. But given the age of the school canteen customers we take special care. We’ve inspected all schools in the City and all nine passed with flying colours. That’s a great tick for the schools and those who operate the canteens.
