It is important that all children have good food every day. Litter-less lunch boxes are encouraged – using snap lock bags, plastic containers instead of gladwrap and commercially wrapped muesli bars or packets of chips. We are a zero waste school therefore all students are expected to take their rubbish home. We do, however, have a bucket for food scraps, etc. These scraps are fed to a local pig.
Students eat in their class groups and are supervised by their class teacher on the deck outside their classroom at morning tea and lunch. A karakia for kai is said in each classroom prior to eating.
