School Dinners

School meals are served between 12.15 pm and 1.15 pm in the dining area.  We are lucky to have our school lunches cooked on site by our Kitchen Staff. There are three choices of hot lunch each day and at least one of these is always a vegetarian option. There is also the choice of a sandwich. School dinners cost £2.00 per day however, all P1 -3 pupils now receive a free school lunch.  If paying by cheque, please make them payable to Dundee City Council 


Alternatively pupils are allowed to bring in a packed lunch for dinner.
