QKR is now open to use for Canteen orders and payments.
Download the App from your usual app store. QKR is supported by most mobile devices and very user friendly. There is even a category especially for Allergy/Anaphylaxis students. And we do ask you to select a bag option in the menu (after the cup-cake section). On that subject, these can also be selected via QKR.
As per our Compass send out last week, here are the instruction to use 'QKR' to order Canteen meals
Surprise your child and order them a birthday cupcake for $2.50 with raspberry or lemonade icing on top. Orders are now being taken for October, November and December. You can now order at the via the new QKR! app. FINAL DATE is 15th December. We also hope to offer this great initiative on our new online system.

Sharing of Food (and Money)
Some of our students are being lovely to their friends and sharing their food with them (for example icy poles) or lending them money to buy one for themselves. This is very kind, BUT....
Now is a good time to remind families that there is a 'no sharing' of food policy here at Kalinda, with a number of reasons for this; two of which are that some students have allergies or even anaphylaxis to things that may not be obvious in foods, eg traces of nuts and secondly, there are parents who do not wish their child to receive a particular food (eg icy poles), a choice which the child's friends may not be aware of.
We are also asking parents to speak with their children about lending money to their friends to buy food, in case it is the preference of the other family that their child has limitations on their food choices.
We attach the policy here for you to read.
Please be advised, in advance that the Canteen will be closed on Monday 18th November.
