Opening Hours

The Sydney Boys High School Canteen is open from 8:30am until after Recess and Lunch on school days. Any variation to this is advertised to students in the school's daily news bulletin.

Operation and Profit

The School Canteen is in the lower courtyard area of the Charles McDonald Building. The Canteen is sponsored by the P & C Association and is managed by a parent committee. Two canteen managers share the day to day running of the canteen. The diverse range of food offered and an efficient service are only possible due to voluntary help from parents, friends and relatives of students. A lot of menu items are freshly prepared on site by our volunteers allowing the canteen to provide a wide range of inexpensive, wholesome food as well as traditional favourites.

All profits from the canteen are used by the P & C to fund significant improvements to school facilities for the benefit of all students.
