CATERING / NUTRITION
Breakfast, lunch and tea are served in the Dining Hall. The Dining Hall is self-service and we aim to offer a wide selection of healthy meals. Merchiston was one of the first schools in Scotland to gain the ‘Healthy Living Award’ from the Scottish Executive. There is a daily vegetarian option and whenever possible we use Halal meat. If your son has special dietary requirements or allergies, the General Manager is happy to discuss these with you.
Formal meals are arranged each term, either at lunch time or in the evening, for specific Houses.
Each House has a kitchen where snacks can be prepared. Before the 10.50am break, supplies are delivered to the Houses which may consist of milk, bread, cheese, fruit, butter, jam etc.
