Notice board

Crunchtime Lunches


From the term two onwards, CrunchTime lunches will no longer be available.

The team at CrunchTime have been unable to find a financially viable pricing model for healthly, wholesome food that meets the expectations of parents and have therefore decided to close down their business.  

We are sad to see this happen.  The team at CrunchTime were wonderful to work with and they were so passionate and knowledgeable about their product and service.  We were excited to bring CrunchTime to Paparoa Street School.

Thank you very much to all the families who supported this new venture.

Regular PTA lunches will continue to be available on Wednesdays and Fridays and can be ordered via LunchOnline.
