School Meals

Lunchtimes are an enjoyable aspect of the Kennett school day.  There is always a variety of delicious and healthy foods for your child to enjoy. 

Spring / Summer 2024

Our school's catering provider is Chartwells. They are the leading provider of catering services to schools across the country. Their philosophy is Eat, Learn, Live. This philosophy aims to educate young people regarding how to lead a happy, safe and healthy lifestyle, while contributing to a sustainable world

Each meal is freshly prepared every day and you can be assured that a school meal will offer, two portions of fruit and vegetables, a dairy food item - rich in calcium for strong bones and teeth -  starchy carbohydrate - to provide energy - and a protein source to support the body growth and repair. 


Our school uses Arbor's Parent Portal as a means for parents/carers to view the menu and pay for their child's chosen meals electronically. Children are able to choose their meals at home. As part of our ongoing commitment to reduce food waste, we ask that meals are ordered one week in advance.
Instructions about how to order can be found on the Arbor Help Centre.
