Scores on Schools a Council first

The City of Canterbury Bankstown has launched a new program aimed at safe food handling and allergen management in schools and child care centres.

Administrator Richard Colley said that, following Council’s routine food safety inspections at local schools and child care centres, those that comply with food safety regulations and demonstrate an understanding of allergen management, will be entitled to receive a certificate which they can display.

"The best possible rating is five stars which is excellent," Mr Colley said. "Four stars is very good and three stars is good."

The rating system is based on the successful Scores on Doors program, where food handling outlets, such as cafés, restaurants, wholesalers and fast food businesses, are rated according to their level of compliance with safe food handling practices.

Over the past five years, 178 local businesses have received the five-star excellent rating, while another 18 were awarded the four-star rating.

Mr Colley said these ratings assist customers when choosing the best business to buy food from or dine at.

"Now parents and guardians can be assured the same standards will apply at schools and child care centres, which prepare food for children," he said.

One of the first to participate in the new Scores on Schools program was Cub Bee House Early Learning Centre at Panania, which received the five-star rating.

Supervisor Yen Tanner said the new program gave parents and guardians peace of mind, knowing their children are well looked after when it comes to food.

"It’s just another way we can make our parents and guardians feel confident and comfortable when they’re children attend our centre, and it reinforces the importance of safe food handling and food allergies with our staff," Mrs Tanner said.

In the upcoming months, Council will be hosting free Food Handling Training Courses for child care centres and schools, similar to the award-winning courses it regularly holds for local cafés, restaurants, wholesalers and fast food businesses.
