Meals and Nutrition

students being served lunch in the dining hall

We understand the importance of a balanced and nutritious diet for young men.

All our meals are produced by our chefs and catering staff who prepare over 2000 meals every day to ensure our students are provided with the necessary energy required for their busy lives. Menus are based on fresh, seasonal foods and we avoid added fat, salt and sugar so that our students develop good eating habits. Our meals are tasty and meet the nutritional guidelines for adolescents. Some special dietary requirements and allergies can be catered for.

All students are required to come to the dining hall for all meals. The dining hall at each campus is of sufficient size to hold all students and staff while we eat as a community. When young men have school or sporting commitments, they can arrange to have an early meal or a meal to be saved for their return.​​​​​​
