Packed Lunches

Lunch is an important meal for school going children. St. Anne’s N.S. has a healthy eating policy so we will ask you to encourage a healthy lunch right from the start. Please ensure your child has a healthy lunch daily. The lunch should consist of items your child can manage easily and independently. A small snack for morning break is also advisable.
