Wednesdays are a treat at Torquay when we have Fun Lunches. These affordably-priced meals from Subway, Pizza Hut, White Spot and Thrifty Foods sushi are ordered in advance and delivered directly to the school. Skip packing lunch on Wednesdays and order a Fun Lunches instead!
For the 2020-2021 school year we're starting with Subway and Pizza lunches every other week for Term 1 and evaluate the interest and options for Term 2 and 3.
How can I order Hot Lunches?
We will be doing online ordering for all orders to ensure accuracy with the orders and to make the process as easy as possible.
The online order system requires a small amount of setup time at the beginning as you must register each child you have attending our school prior to ordering fun lunch. Once the initial setup process is complete, your lunch orders for the remainder of the year should be quick and simple. Orders can currently be placed for until December 2020 only.
Here's how to get started...
- Go to torquay.hotlunches.net
- Click on "Click Here to Register" on the right sidebar
- Enter Access Code THL
- Complete the rest of the registration form including your email address will ensure you receive reminder emails about fun lunch order deadlines, and your child's fun lunch order for the upcoming week.
- Click the "Register Now" button at the bottom
- Follow the instructions to add each child in your family who attends Torquay Elementary
- Once your child(ren) are registered, click on "Orders"

If you are a returning Torquay Family, you will have to set up an account again as classroom teachers and divisions have changed from the previous year.
