As healthy food specialists, the team at the canteen works hard daily to prepare delicious meals for students at a low cost. Meals are available before school, during recess and lunch breaks.
Menus vary depending on the day of the week. With most meals made from scratch using quality ingredients, students are sure to find a suitable option each day.
The canteen at Geraldton Senior High School complies with the ‘Star Choice’ program and guidelines published by the Western Australian School Canteen Association. This program gives a green or amber rating to different products to help canteens make healthy choices when it comes to menu options.

With a five-star food system rating by the City of Greater Geraldton, there is a high focus on cleanliness and hygiene.

Geraldton Senior High School has a purpose-built modern library run by a dedicated library team. The myriad of library services we offer are seen as essential to the development of learning skills.
Reading is a window to the world. Inquiry provides a framework for learning. These are the foundations upon which our library is built. As our definition of information literacy becomes more complex, as resources and technologies change, Dr Parry and his enthusiastic team provide invaluable solutions. They make sure everyone has fair access to books and reading, to information, and to information technology. And they do so in an environment that is safe and conducive to learning.
The library is a real place. There is always a quiet spot to read, write and think. Peace and quiet is as essential to well-being as fresh air and parks. We have an extensive fiction section and subscribe to all the popular magazines.
The library is a virtual place. Users point their devices and jump up to the cloud. We offer wireless connectivity and lightning-fast connection speeds. Parents expect, and students deserve, the best technology available. Dr Parry and his team work tirelessly to make that happen.
The library is a place to be social. Learning is enhanced by opportunities to share and learn with others. In this increasingly global world of information, our students are taught to seek diverse perspectives, gather and use information ethically, and use social tools responsibly and safely.
We are open from 8.30am to 3.30pm every school day including recess (borrowings only) and lunch. All staff and students are welcome to borrow physical resources.
Our library: setting the standard for 21st-century learners.
