School Lunches

Our new school meals caterers, MIQUILL CATERING SERVICES, began providing meals for the children who are currently in school. There were lots of “ooohs” and “aaahs” as the children visited the serving hatch. We think this might have been prompted by the attractive display of ingredients and sample menus, or maybe it was the delicious looking dishes being served by our kitchen staff. It could even have been the sight of Mr Bell modelling one of the new MIQUILL aprons alongside our cooks in their brand new MIQUILL uniforms.

This new menu will make your eyes light up! I recommend the chicken burgers — in my opinion they were delicious. The BEST for me was the vegetarian noodles — they were bomb — just one taste and you would be amazed by some yummy veggies. Another fantastic lunch was … roast dinner. The roast chicken was very good and very nice. I have really enjoyed trying the food from this brand new menu and I hope you do also.

Me and my two brothers, Ehsaaq from Kingfisher Class and Ismael from Rabbit Class all love the new school lunches.  My favourite was the vegetable noodles. It was super delicious. I also like the pizza and desserts and would be interested to learn how they are cooked so I can try to make them at home with my family.

Aleesa (Goldfinch, Year 4)

The new school lunch menu is very different from the last one: we have different varieties of food each day, retaining the amount of nutrition in each meal. Unlike before we now have more vegan-friendly options, we also have salad now with a variety of desserts such as: sticky toffee banana pudding, chocolate crunch, shortbread biscuits, sticky ginger cake and a few more. Most importantly this is a lunch that children are enjoying.
