We treated the Infants to a pizza day last Wednesday (during the Primary Swimming Carnival) to show our appreciation of their good manners, clean eating and, most recognisably, their value of gratitude. As you can imagine it was very well received! The Primary children will have their turn.
For new parents, please be assured that we are providing your children with a well balanced and nutritious meal everyday. There is always a small portion of plain (i.e bland) food for those whose taste preferences are still developing. Fresh fruits and vegetables, bread, butter, sultanas, yoghurt and cheese are always available.
We have carefully evolved the menu over many years in consultation with an independent dietician. Sweet spreads such as jam and honey, and peanut butter have not been served for several years, in accordance with our nutritional and nut aware policy.
The weekly menu balance must take into consideration many things; the weather, season, budget, taste, time, age appropriateness, texture, likes and dislikes of the student majority, staff, school policy and the NSW Government regulations.
It is our happy duty to offer a healthy, vegetarian meal to all students and we support them to attempt the meal that is offered with respect and gratitude.
If you would like to see and experience more, you are welcome to join the kitchen staff and myself for a week to walk a week in our shoes and to appreciate the John Colet Lunch. Please email bbhandari@johncolet.nsw.edu.au if you would like to take up this offer.
