Most of Mount Royal students eat lunch at school due to the short noon hour (40 minutes); microwaves and hot water are provided for student use. We have a small student-run canteen were students can purchase snacks, beverages and instant meals. We also have pizza for students to purchase on Thursdays. 

Students are expected to use the garbage and recycling bins provided. The activity fee of $30 per year covers intramural activities and clubs at lunch and students may also engage in outdoor activities or complete homework in the Learning Commons. Students are not permitted on the second floor from 11:40 am – 12:00 pm, unless working with a teacher. 


The school canteen is open Monday to Thursday from 11:20 - 11:40. Leadership students have been operating, advertising, and stocking the school store and have been learning valuable lessons and having a blast. We have great deals on lunch time snacks and are beginning to bring in new items like school supplies and other lunch items. A student favorite is Pizza Day every Thursday for $2.00 a slice!

Lunchtime Schedule

The Learning Commons and Games Room are open daily for students working on homework and play board. Intramurals are held in the gym.  Intramurals will start mid September  and it is open to all grades, once the weather gets colder grades will be assigned to certain days.  The intramural calendar will be on the bulletin board outside the gym.

Vending Machine

Students can purchase snacks from the vending machine before school, at lunch, or after school. The machine is not to be used during class time or at class change.

Fun Lunches

Fun Lunches at Mount Royal happen every Tuesday.  You will first need to go to the Healthy Hunger Website  and set up a parent account.  Just follow the instructions on the website home page.  You will locate Mount Royal Junior High School and add your student under their TA Teacher’s name.  Once you have set up a parent account you will receive notifications of any upcoming school Fun Lunches.  If you do not set up an account you will not receive notifications.  

You can purchase as few or as many lunches as you want throughout the year, there is no obligation.  If you have any questions on setting up an account or any questions pertaining to the Fun Lunch program at Mount Royal please contact
