Christmas Dinner

Dear Parents and Carers,

At this very busy time of year, our catering staff are already planning and preparing for the provision of a wonderful Christmas lunch in school on Thursday 15th December for all our students and staff.

You will appreciate that catering for such a large number of people on this special day is an enormous challenge and requires the cooperation of everyone. On the 15th December, students will either have a pre-ordered Christmas lunch or may bring their own packed lunch. (There will not be the usual choice of hot meals or snack bar service on this day but there will be a choice of traditional roast turkey dinner or vegetarian options.) Students from both sites will all be dining in the hall at site B on this day.

The Christmas lunch menu for this year will be:

Traditional Roast Turkey Dinner with all the Trimmings
Vegetarian Roast
Cheese and Tomato Pasta Bake
Quorn in Cream Sauce

Christmas Pudding
Selection of alternative desserts

For the system to operate smoothly, we require students to order their choice and purchase a Christmas lunch ticket for £4 in advance of the big day. From now until Friday 9th December, students can go to the hall in sites A and B at break times to order their choice and purchase their ticket. Payment can be made by cash, cheque or debited from their lunch account which, of course, will need to be sufficiently in credit. All students receiving free school meals are also required to order their choice. Students intending to bring a packed lunch should also go to the hall for this to be recorded.

Christmas lunch day has traditionally been a special, most enjoyable event and we envisage this year’s to be equally as successful.

Thank you in anticipation of your continuing support.

Yours faithfully

Mrs A. Miller
