Food at School

At Hay Park School we encourage children to bring a healthy lunch to school. We have three 'fuel breaks' during the day.

This year we are offering the children breakfast at 9am. This coincides with a reading lesson.

 A 'brain break' at 10:00am for fruit and milk (thanks to Fruit in Schools and Fonterra Milk in Schools), a healthy snack at morning tea and a healthy lunch at 12:50pm.

It is important that children have enough healthy food throughout the day - it is hard to learn with a hungry tummy! Children are not able to buy their lunch at school, they need to bring it from home.

We have a water only policy - children can bring a water bottle to school. We also have plenty of water fountains for children to drink from.
