It is important to encourage the students to eat a well-balanced meal, and to develop healthy eating habits. At ISL, we allow students to bring their packed lunch or we provide optional hot meals at lunch time.
Novae, a local catering company of excellent repute, provides nutritious, well-balanced meals at competitive prices. Adherence to the Swiss “Fourchette verte junior” (Green Fork Junior) programme further guarantees the quality of the food on offer. Additionally, the cafeteria aims to offer an appealing, nutritious school lunch in a calm and relaxed environment.
All subscriptions for the cafeteria hot lunches are made online, they can be contracted for specific days of the week. A trial week is also available upon request for students who wish to experience the cafeteria service before registering.
Students are served the “Fourchette Verte” menu at the cafeteria at table during two sitting with the following costs.
Reception 3 to Year 3: CHF 11.35
Years 4 to 6: CHF 12.05
Please note, students who have signed up for cafeteria hot lunches, are provided with picnics when they leave on a day excursion.
In regards to second helpings, students who are still hungry after either their menu can ask to be served a second helping on the same menu. Students should simply ask a teacher on duty or the cafeteria personnel.
Reception 3 and 4 classes operate a morning snack system whereby parents supply a snack for the whole class on a rota basis. However, in Years 1 to 6, students should bring their own morning snack.
Students are provided with a cafeteria card when they enter Secondary School. They should use this to purchase items from the cafeteria. We kindly ask parents to charge their child(ren)’s account and that they check the balance regularly.
The students have access to the self-service area and have the choice of four menus; “Fourchette Verte,” Pasta/Gourmet, Vegetarian or Pizza. Additionally a salad buffet is available, priced in terms of weight. Healthy snacks, like fresh fruit, yoghurt, sandwiches, bakery products and cereal bars, are sold in the cafeteria, and in a vending machine.
