School Lunches

School lunches

It is the policy of Education Services and the school to encourage healthy eating as part of a healthy lifestyle, pupils are encouraged to make healthy choices in regard to diet and exercise in an effort to achieve a “Health Promoting School”. Whinhill Primary has gained national accreditation in Health Promoting School.

All food in Whinhill is cooked at the school. A three-week menu system is in operation providing a healthy choice of food. After making his/her choice, the child pays for the food at a cash point. Any pupil who requires a special diet because of some medical problems can be catered for. For pupils who are entitled to free meals the school office will issue a ticket to the cashier in the dining room each day the child comes for lunch. The stage area is set out for pupils who bring their own packed lunch.

Information and application forms for free school meals may be obtained from school and Education Services at 105 Dalrymple Street, Greenock, PA15 1HU. In addition such children will be entitled to free milk.

Milk may also be available for purchase in the school during the lunch period.
