Lunch Orders

We are pleased to announce that lunch orders will be available 2 days per week in 2021!


Every Tuesday and Friday families will have the opportunity to place orders for students who will receive them at lunchtime. Orders will continue to be placed online via QuickCliq and must be placed by 9am on the day prior to order day.  


The Menu and How to Order guides can be found on Compass by clicking on the Community Icon \ School Information \ Parent Information \ Canteen.

Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club has returned for all students at ACS!  We will be providing breakfast on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 8.40am to 8.55am.  Students can make their way over to the Canteen for a quick take away breakfast.


This is a great opportunity for your child to practice their social skills by:

  • Lining up calmly and waiting patiently to be served.
  • Remembering to use their manners by saying ‘please’ and ‘thank  you’ when engaging with our volunteer staff.
  • Taking care of our school and placing all of their rubbish in the bins provided.

We would like to thank Food Bank Victoria for supplying all of our food products free of charge for this valuable program.

Library Fund

Our school has established a Library Fund which will enable us to further build on our resources of library books and ICT equipment.


All monetary donations are tax deductible – please contact the office for any further information or if you would like to make a donation.


Compass is our Parent Portal and a vital communication tool that connects our home\school partnership.  Families can enter student absences, see Student Reports, email teachers and make payments for events, camps, excursions etc - these are just a few of the many options available.


There are also many valuable resources for families on Compass under the School Documentation section including YMCA - Before and After School Care information, Canteen Menu's and ordering guide, Medication Authority Forms, Term Dates and links to all previous Newsletters, just to name a few.
