Welcome to a new school year - please find our return to school COVID-19 information here.

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 lunchtime.

Novae, a local catering company of excellent repute, provides nutritious meals at competitive prices. Adherence to the Swiss Fourchette Verte programme further guarantees the quality of the food on offer. Additionally, the cafeteria aims to provide a relaxed dining environment.

A menu includes a starter, a main dish, and a dessert. In regards to second helpings, students who are still hungry after their menu can ask to be served a second time.

Primary School

Subscriptions for the cafeteria hot lunches are made online and 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 sittings with the following costs:

  • Reception 3 and 4 menu: CHF 8.70
  • Years 1 to 6 menu: CHF 10.70

Students who have signed up for cafeteria hot lunches are provided with a picnic when they leave on a day excursion.

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.

Secondary School

Students are provided with a cafeteria card when they enter Secondary School. This card is credited by parents using an online account. Students then use the card to purchase items from the cafeteria.

Students have access to the cafeteria during the morning recess and at lunchtime during two sittings. For lunch, they can purchase a menu for the price of CHF 11.70.

The students have access to the self-service area and have the choice of four menus: Fourchette Verte, vegetarian, pasta/ gourmet or pizza. Additionally a salad buffet is available, priced in terms of weight, as well as a sandwich bar. Healthy snacks, like fresh fruits, yogurts, bakery products, and cereal bars are sold in the cafeteria.

During the morning and lunch recesses, Years 12 and 13 students also have access to the South Campus Café which provides take-away meals and snacks.
