Why choose the catering from Active Education?


We have oodles of experience in catering of all kinds! Our catering manager Meegan is a qualified chef who has worked for over 30 years in catering, from restaurants to mining oil rigs to special event functions! Meegan draws on the catering experience of all our wonderful cooks Fiona, Pauline, Caroline & Melanie as well as our awesome kitchenhand staff.

We have almost 20 years experience of group catering at campsites as Active Education. We are the premier provider of school camp packages in SA to around 9,000 children every year. Co-owner Dave Parr has cooked for school & adult groups for over 30 years in campsites around the state his chocolate chip cookies, apple cake & pancakes are the stuff of legend for 3 generations of campers!

Professional & Reliable Catering

When you book us for your catering you have the peace of mind of knowing your catering booking has the professional backing of Active Education. Ensure your catering booking will be well managed & resourced from the time you make your initial enquiry right through to the event, by booking with a reputable & reliable company. We have a proven track record as you will see from the testimonials below. Be careful not to risk the catering of your special event to solo operators who are especially vulnerable to the impact of unforeseen events such as illness or injury or who could be here today & gone tomorrow.

Approachable, Responsive & Flexible Staff

We are enthusiastic & keen to contribute to the success of your event. We carefully select staff that will be down to earth, friendly and helpful in the way they interact with you & your guests. We know group catering comes in all shapes & sizes. Yours is an active group on the go so you need take away lunches & snacks no problem! Your conference has a special dinner event - no worries!  You want catering at a particular venue we can help! We will create & deliver catering that meets your needs and budget.

The Food!

Please enjoy looking through our meal & menu suggestions below. Our goal is to give you flexible options without a bewildering array of choices! However if there is something you particularly want we will do our best to accommodate your wishes including vegetarian, gluten free & other special dietary requests.

We pride ourselves on making fresh & yummy food for you, so you will find our prices are a little higher than caterers who buy ready-made meals or who scrimp on portions! As responsible employers we also pay our staff award & penalty rates for their work, and we support local small businesses wherever possible to do our bit to help the backbone of our economy to flourish!

Our improved school camp menu options provide Rite Bite information to assist our school camp customers to make informed choices in light of considering DECS departmental guidelines.  

Please call Meegan to discuss your catering requirements on 8370 1500.
