School Canteens to be cleaned up by 2009

By johnboy 9 May 2006 34

The Canberra Times has the happy news that school shops are going to be forced to clean up their act and stop selling junk to children in the name of profit.

Certification, however seems to be a bit onerous.

The process typically takes a year to complete, and schools must requalify every two years.

While I know some of the kids will walk to the local shops and buy their chocolate and potato scallops, this is still going to make sure the lazy ones eat better.

What’s Your opinion?

Oh – and WTF is the go with Cave Clan? I did this when I was a teenager – but as an adult (or at least being in posession of an adult body) it begs the question; Is there really that little else to do than wade around in someone elses filth?

Thumper & Dan – RA spooky tour – we can go to Lake George first if you like… Although I’m tipping we should stop in a pub somewhere along the way so no one will ever believe what we saw.

Nope, it would scare the hell out of me!

But I may at some stage.

Working for a business that specialises monopolises international trade, I can tell you that AQIS stopping the import of bananas is bollocks.

The Thumper warren has no such toys of mass destruction!

Lots of musical gear though….

if a little darling has to walk 1km to get his pie and chips, thats probably good.

rg – the house of bonfire has a fully working atari 2600 with over 100 games.

“slighty off the topic, were can you buy bananas these days, woolies doesnt seem to stock them anymore”

I saw them in the supermarket at Hawker Shops for about $10.99Kg about 2 days ago.

Yeah – I did run around in the rain as a kid. I’m a little old now, and people look at me funny when I do…so I stick to the Xbox these days.

Thumper 8:46 am 10 May 06

Nah, I’m not Cave Clan, too old and lazy, but I do like old, abandoned buildings….

DaNmAn 8:40 am 10 May 06

Cave Clan Motto – when it rains no drains.
I thought I was the only one here who likes photographing and going in drains, tunnels, abandoned buildings etc

Thumper 8:31 am 10 May 06

Rainy day. Come on Mr Shab, didn’t you, as a kid, run around and jump in puddles and play in stormwater drains as I did?

Warning; All you kiddies out there reading this. Do not attempt to play in stormwater drains in the rain as it is very dangerous….
