table with them, in order to encourage both linguistic and social interaction.
All students must have lunch in the regular dining room.We are not allowed to permit packed lunches or other food of any kind to beconsumed or distributed in school. If you require a special dietary regime for reasons of health, allergies, religious belief or ethical choice,please fill in the form available in school offices to make sure our cafeteria staff are aware of your needs. Meals are served in the school Cafeteria.There is a specific monthly menu published in advance and posted on the communications board.
We cannot allow food in school if it has not been prepared by our cafeteria staff.
In order for our students to understand the importance of collaborating in all areas of life we have decided to run a programme called ‘Canteen Managers’. Each week we select one student of each class who will help to serve the others as well as to clear and tidy the canteen to the best after their lunch time.
Our students live up to the high expectations.
