Students may bring food from home and/or purchase it from the cafeteria. No food can be brought into the school for students during the day.
Peanuts and peanut products are banned within the school. This restriction includes all food brought to school from home.
All food, whether purchased at school outlets or brought in from home, must only be consumed in the G/F cafeteria, the 1/F café or the 2/F deli deck. Exceptions:
Year 6 students may also use the 2/F deck near the Year 6 classrooms
Senior students may also use the Senior Student Centre
Teachers may, from time to time, request that students bring their lunch to a lunchtime activity in a location other than those designated as eating areas. In all instances, the teacher would provide a written note to the student to this effect.

The café is open daily on the 1/F between 8 am–4 pm for parents/visitors who wish to purchase drinks and food. It is also available at designated times to secondary students. Daily newspapers are provided, as are a range of children’s books and toys for those families with preschoolers.

For your convenience and taking into account the requirements of the different year level groups, this is the system for ordering/purchasing food.

The Chartwells website has also been recently updated. It is now much more user friendly and informative. Please follow the link to see what is new: www.compass-hk.com/chartwells
From their web site you can simply select your school from the drop down box and view the menu for the month. The new site now enables you to download Chartwells information regarding your school as well as the latest copy of the menu and enrolment form. If you would like you child to enrol in our lunch programme then please complete the form, attach your payment and then hand it in to our Catering Manager in the Cafeteria. To avoid unnecessary delay in the processing of your child’s lunch program, please include the student’s first, middle and last names (with common names), as well as the grade and class identified on the form below. It is also recommended to include this information on the back of your cheque.
On their website you can also find out more information about our Taste Life programme, check your BMI and read our bi-monthly school newsletter.
For Years 1-2, choose one of three options for each day e.g. hot meal/sandwich/baguettes. These will be delivered to the classrooms.
For Years 3-6, choose from three ‘hot’ options including one vegetarian choice. Pasta with your choices of sauce e.g. tomato or béchamel is also available.
Students will make the specific choice ON the day, i.e. hot meals/pasta. This is to alleviate the issue of children changing their minds when they see what their friends are having.
Ordering food - Years 7 – 13
Students can pay for their meals on the day using either cash or Octopus.
Year 7 – Year 9 can eat in our Upper Level Cafe where we serve a range of freshly made snacks, salads, paninis and ciabattas as well as refreshingly healthy smoothies.
The Octopus card payment system is available in the Ground Floor Cafeteria and on the Upper Level Cafe. It is a safe and clean way to pay and as lunch time is very busy and we don’t want students handling money during the lunch period.
