Canteen Changes

Our catering team recently held a meeting with a group of 90 boys to discuss the menus on offer in school.

They suggested a number of changes and improvements which will be introduced this week, these include:

A full English breakfast option in the morning plus the sale of sausage or bacon barms at break times and ice cream at lunch in the summer months.

Ms Smyth has agreed to these changes and prices are as follows:

  • A full breakfast of bacon, sausage, egg, beans, hash brown and toast plus a cup of tea is £1.50
  • At break time bacon barms will be on sale for £1 or a sausage barm 80p (these will be alternated each day)
  • Ice cream will be on sale during Friday lunchtimes, price TBC.

An ordering system for sandwiches and baguettes will be introduced w/c Monday 30 June, look out for more information soon.

Bible Quote

“Praise the Lord because he is good.  His faithful love will last forever.”
Psalm 136:1

Word of the Week

Machiavellian (adjective)

Subject which uses this term: English Literature; Drama; History; Politics

Meaning: cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous.

For example: ‘Mrs Lyons is Machiavellian. She manipulates Mrs Johnstone into giving up her baby. She uses Mrs Johnstone’s superstitious nature to ensure she gets what she wants.’

MRS. LYONS: You do know what they say about twins, secretly parted, don’t you?


MRS. LYONS: They say…they say that if either twin learns that he once was a pair, that they shall both immediately die. It means, Mrs. Johnstone, that these brothers shall grow up, unaware of the other’s existence. They shall be raised apart and never, ever told what was once the truth. You won’t tell anyone about this, Mrs. Johnstone, because if you do, you will kill them."

Thought for the Week


"Don't be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people."
