New School Lunch Menu

In an effort to make our school lunches healthier, reduce waste and increase uptake this week we have been trialling some new dishes.  Today it was beef tacos and macaroni cheese, which received an overwhelming thumbs up.  Thank you to Elsa and Dawn for following up on the children’s menu suggestions and helping to make our school lunches a delicious success.
