Grade 6 students will be actively supervised by lunchroom supervisors, in which daily lunch attendance is taken. After taking attendance and eating in their homeroom, Grade 6 students will then proceed outdoors for a recess. Grade 6 students must come to school dressed for the weather and ready for fresh air and exercise for 20 minutes daily at lunch. Please visit our Lunch Supervision page for more information and how to register.
Designated areas for eating for Grades 7 to 9 include:
- Cafeteria / lunch lounge on the main floor
- School courtyard
- Hallway benches
- Teacher classrooms (by invitation).
Eating on the stairwells and landings is not permitted as it is a safety hazard. Careful supervision from meal supervisors and teachers, in classrooms, lunchroom, hallways and outdoors at lunchtime is a high priority.

As a number of our students have severe allergies to nuts, including peanuts, we are an Allergy Aware school. We ask for your support in protecting students with allergies by not sending foods containing tree nuts or peanuts to school.
