Cowan Public School

A Vibrant and Caring Learning Community

Telephone02 9456 1065

What we offer

Each school in NSW offers something slightly different depending on the community. Here's what we offer for you.


All canteens in NSW public schools must meet certain requirements. These include providing more healthy food and drink options – to make the healthy choice an easy choice for students. Visit Healthy school canteens to learn more.

Our school works in conjunction with our local shop, the Great North Café, and our parents and citizens association (P&C) to offer a nutritious and varying menu in line with the healthy school canteens policy.

School lunches are ordered at the Great North Café (previously known as Cowan General Store) and delivered to school at lunchtime. The café complies with the healthy school canteen guidelines, with two 'red days' each term. Please view the Great North Café menu (PDF 34KB) for your lunch order. 


When students wear a school uniform, they feel included in our school community.  We encourage students to wear the school uniform with pride.

Students, teachers, parents and carers, as well as members of our local community helped develop our school uniform to make sure it:

  • meets the requirements of occupational health and safety, anti-discrimination and equal opportunity legislation

  • includes items that are affordable, comfortable and made from easy-care and easy-wear fabrics

  • is appropriate for the full range of school activities

  • is suitable for all body shapes.

Jewellery is not permitted at school, except for small personal items such as sleepers and watches. The school will not accept responsibility if these items are lost or stolen.
