Children of parents receiving certain benefits are entitled to a free midday meal. Information and application forms for free school meals are available from schools, registration offices, customer service centres or by downloading from the council’s website: http://www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/article/2303/School-meals .
Children who are entitled to free school meals are also entitled to free milk at lunchtime. Milk may also be available for sale in the school during the lunch period.
The school lunch break lasts from 1.15 – 2.00pm Monday, Tuesday and Thursday and 12.25 – 1.10pm on Wednesday and Friday. Lunches are served in the Dining Room. In addition, food is available at morning interval. Fresh water is available to all pupils/students in the canteen at interval and lunchtime.
A cashless catering system is in operation and pupils will be issued with a temporary card until consent forms have been completed.
Food can still be purchased in the dining hall using cash, however the cashless card is an efficient and safer way of paying for school meals. All meals are prepared and food provided with the aims of the ‘Hunger for Success’ initiative very much in mind to encourage positive attitudes to healthy eating and living.
The Canteen in Trinity High School provides excellent quality at competitive prices and pupils/students are encouraged to make use of this Facility.
