Scoil Ghobnatan are delighted to announce that for the coming school year we will be operating Phase 1 of the School Meals Programme. This is great news for every child in the school for the whole of the 2017/2018 school year. The programme means that Scoil Ghobnatan will provide each child in the school with a healthy and delicious breakfast every school day for the 2017/2018 school year. Each meal will consist of good quality nutritious food and a drink. The contents of the meal will initially be decided by the school but in the future, there is the opportunity for parents to become involved in selecting the menu.
It is important to note there is no cost to the children / parents / guardians. The food and drink will arrive each day to the school and will be distributed by the class teachers to the children in the morning. To begin with, the breakfast meal will consist of fruit and still water.
The School Meals programme will help both parents and teachers implement healthy eating habits in children from a young age. Learning healthy eating habits at this stage will stay with the child once established.
