What We Eat
The European School provides an on-campus canteen, cafeteria for students and staff to enjoy with the goal of providing a variety of healthy and tasty food. Ninety percent of the items served are home-made and hand prepared right on site by our professional and highly experienced staff. The canteen strives to use mainly local ingredients, which retain the most nutrients due to short distances traveled. All food is prepared daily on the premises using fresh ingredients hence ensuring quality. The menu offered to school students is developed according to recommendations and guidelines provided by the Ministry of Labour, Health and Social Affairs of Georgia and helps students keep their energy levels up during the whole school day.
There are two main serving stations for breakfast and lunch: the school canteen and the school cafeteria catering to the Elementary School, the Middle School, the High School and staff. During the breakfast and lunch breaks, students learn the importance of good table manners, and can socialize with other students in comfortable dining rooms. Students can bring their own lunch if they are not using food services offered by the school.
The main canteen starts serving lunch from 12.25pm-12.55pm for Middle School, High School and staff.
The Elementary School serving area starts at 9.35am in the order below:
9.35am – 9.50am: Grade 1 and 2
10.35am – 10.50am: Grade 3, 4 and 5
13.15pm-13.45pm: Grade 1,2,3,4 and 5
The school cafeteria functions throughout the day starting from 9.00am till 5.00pm.
The card system is basically a prepaid debit card for Middle School and High School students. Each individual Photo ID card has a unique bar code used to access the prepaid account when swiped and is used to pay for hot lunches as well as snacks. The process is very easy and comfortable.
