Mrs Farrelly prepares a menu each week and is excellent at ensuring there is always a variety of food and new ideas to try to entice the pupils to try new meals, all kept within the guidelines. Pupils do have an input on meals, each term the pupils who stay on residence are asked for their view also the School Council have an input.
In Autumn, Winter and Spring soup is a favourite as one of the courses, Mrs Farrelly is always looking for new flavours for the pupils to try. Main courses can be anything from a homely Roast Dinner to a Italian Lasagne, there is always a vegetarian option followed by fruit bags, fresh fruit or a delicious desert. All the food is prepared from fresh ingredients and following the Healthy Eating regime.
There are two lunch sittings every day with the year groups mixed.
Meryl and Helen cover the cleaning of the house and residence, they work extremely hard to keep the areas fresh and clean, the staff and pupils really appreciate, how clean the areas are when they arrive in work in, which gives a good start to the day.
Meryl is always looking for money saving ideas getting the best value at all times and along with Helen raises funds for the School Charity.
At the present time the school is part of the Magic Breakfast scheme. For the previous two years, this project was Government funded and was free to schools who met the criteria, which was schools who had a high percentage of FSM, this year the School have had to make a donation as the funding is no longer available.
Various times during the week, bagels, fresh fruit, fruit juice and cereals are delivered, this enables the school to run a very successful Breakfast Club for all pupils.
It also ensures all pupils start the day by having had a drink and some nourishing food to eat, which gives them the energy to concentrate in the class and do well in lessons.
