Healthy Eating

Our Healthy Eating Policy will be updated before the end of the school year 2016/2017. The new policy will be communicated to parents at the start of the 2017/2018 school year. We encourage all children to bring healthy lunches to school. The children eat twice a day. Crisps, bars, cakes, sweets, fizzy drinks, biscuits or chocolate are not considered to be healthy! Children may drink water only throughout the school day. To date, we have had wonderful co-operation from parents in implementing our Healthy Eating Policy and we sincerely hope that this will continue. On Friday the children are allowed to bring one small treat to school.

Please do not give your child any lunch/treat containing nuts as we have a number of children in the school with nut allergies.

In keeping with our Green School Policy, we ask parents to give children re-usable containers for their drinks and lunches and to keep packaging to a minimum. As we no longer have compost facilities in school, we request that children bring home all waste from their lunches.

The school operates a school milk scheme, where you can order milk for your child at a cost of €34 per child, per year. Milk order forms will be sent home at the start of the school year.
