To whom it may concern,
My Canteen Manager (Karen Thornhill) benefitted greatly from completing the Canteen Management Course in 2016. I have observed a rapid increase in her strategic and operational capacity that has had an immediate impact on Canteen Operations and more broadly the school community.
Example of this include:
- Application of the Traffic light system to the menu and an increase in the diversity of the menu while keeping costs in check
- Changes to OHS practice and standards
- Community consultation re menu, work practices etc.
- Renewal of our whole school Healthy Eating Policy.
This completion of this course was an extremely important capacity building experience for Karen.
