HEALTHY EATING

To encourage pupils to make healthy food choices within school, St. Mary’s operates a Healthy Eating Rewards Scheme whereby pupils can accumulate points for their healthy eating efforts in both Cafe Bordeaux and Cafe Pierre. These points can then be exchanged for a ‘top-up’ on dinner cards and points will also be recognised through the ‘Pastoral House System’. Spot checks by SNAG (School Nutrition Action Group) representatives on pupils lunchboxes contents also enables those pupils who eat apacked lunch to gain ‘House point merits’ throughout the School academic Year.
