School Lunch Breaks

There are two eating breaks during the school day.

The children eat at their tables in the classroom.  We encourage the children to keep the food in the lunch boxes or on the lids for reasons of hygiene.  The children wash their hands and make use of anti- bacterial hand-washes in the school.  For the purpose of recycling, and to cut down costs in school, we ask that all of our children take home their waste packages, leftover food etc. in the lunch boxes to dispose of in their home bins. The Lunchbag service is available in the school. Please see their website for details www.thelunchbag.ie


Because of the risk of severe reactions to allergies, we ask that no nuts be brought into the school. Sharing of food should also be avoided for this reason,  and we would appreciate if parents would advise and remind their children of this.  Younger children especially are tempted by the lunches they see in other lunch boxes!

Independent Eating

We would like to encourage independent eating at all times and at all ages: children, if they have them in their lunch boxes, should be able to open and eat a yogurt without spilling; peel a banana or an orange, open a cheese string etc. Each child should also be enabled to sit at the table and eat calmly.  Lunch times can be a good opportunity for socialising, chatting and making friends.
