The Avondale College canteen provides a range of food options to students before school, during interval and at lunchtimes.
Text-My-Lunch gives families the option to purchase from a nutritionally balanced, value-for-money tuckshop menu that can now be ordered online. The 'Eat Smart' menu features balanced meals designed by a team of nutritionists for kiwi school kids, so they have the right fuel to learn.
Parents can pre-order and pay for their student's $6 lunch combo here:
Once ordered, a notification will be sent to the student's phone. You just need to show this at the canteen to collect your order.
Our Careers Department staff are there to help students with course planning, scholarship information and assistance with job and tertiary education applications, CV writing and more. Senior students can book an appointment with Careers staff by emailing the Director. Parents are welcome to attend.
