Ka Ora, Ka Ako - Healthy School Lunches Programme

I am delighted to let you all know that the Board of Trustees has signed up with Lunch By Libelle to provide lunches for our students. We are currently in the approval process and with all going well, we have been informed these lunches could start before the end of March. This is great news and is several weeks ahead of our initial schedule.

We are incredibly grateful to be a part of this programme, which will mean every student at our school will receive a healthy and nutritious lunch everyday for free. The food will be good for them and the menu is varied and interesting.

Lunches will be delivered to classrooms each day and all leftover waste will be taken away. There are high expectations placed on lunch providers to have sustainable practices, to make environmentally conscious choices with packaging and waste reduction solutions.

Lunch by Libelle has developed a four week menu which we will send to you in advance so you know what is coming up. Not every child is going to like the lunch options each day, we hope with you being able to see the menu advance you will be able to anticipate the days where you may choose to put more in their lunch box. Tamariki will still need a piece of fruit for Brain Break and kai for morning tea each day.

We expect that it may take a few weeks for tamariki, whānau and staff at school to adjust to the lunches process and some patience maybe needed initially while we all get used to this new experience. We will work together to ensure the programme is working for you and your tamariki.

More details will come from school shortly.
