Health Promoting School

All parents have been texted a link to the Health Promoting School parents’ questionnaire.  Students have been emailed a questionnaire via their school email.  It is really important that everyone takes the time to complete these questionnaires, as your views can help us improve wellbeing and promote health in Manor house School.  Thank you to those who have already taken the time to do so.

Nutritional Standards for School Meals

I am delighted to see the Nutritional Standards for School Meals  published by Safefood and the HSE.  These standards apply to the School Meals Programme  to ensure that children and young people are offered healthy,
nutritious and balanced meals and snacks.  Hopefully it will also be adopted by other school cafeteria services in the near future.  This is an excellent guide for planning meals for post primary children for parents also.3.0.64_blogphoto_ecofriendlylunchbox
