We’re partnering with Heritage Confections to raise funds for our school with their delicious small-batch traditional kettle corn and flavoured popcorns!!

Visit the website below to place your orders for small-batch, locally made popcorn! A portion of the proceeds will go to supporting the Esther Starkman Fundraising Association. Ordering will be open until Friday, October 6.

You will be notified when your orders will be available for pick-up at the school. Heritage Confections pops all of their orders fresh, so orders will be ready 7-10 days after ordering closes.

Healthy Hunger Hot Lunches

Healthy Hunger hot lunches are back for 2023/2024!!

Skip packing a lunch - instead your child can have a hot lunch delivered right to school!! Hot lunches not only save you time, but help raise money for the school - a portion of your orders goes directly to our Fundraising Association!

We will be rotating through 4 restaurants - Panago, Subway, Edo and Opa - with lunches happening regularly throughout the school year, every second Friday. We’ve also saved a couple of dates during the year for some special restaurants! 

Upcoming Dates - Order Now!

Panago: Friday, September 22 (Orders close Sept 17)

Subway: Friday, September 29 (Orders close Sept 24)

ORDERS CLOSE 5 DAYS before each hot lunch date. After this date, no new orders will be accepted and no changes can be made to current orders.

**Please note the following important info**

- For the first two hot lunches, we are going to trial including the junior high students (grade 7-9). If this is successful, we are hoping to include them for the full year, but this will be dependent on logistics and volunteer support. Junior high students may be required to pick up their lunch from a table instead of having them delivered to their classrooms.

- Grades 1-6 will have their lunches delivered directly to their classrooms.

- Orders can only be held at the school until the end of the day - if your child is absent on a hot lunch day, please contact to arrange to have your order picked up at the school or donated to another student.


We will need parent volunteers to help sort and hand out the orders each lunch day (extra if we’d like to continue including junior high students in the program). 

If you'd like to help us out for any lunch date (no long term commitment needed!), please email
