At NAISR, Tjeerd’s Place serves around 300 students and staff every day and offers a full range of international style foods. Every day Tjeerd’s Place offers a healthy school menu including both hot and cold options.
We ensure that the lunch and snack options from the cafeteria are healthy, balanced and appropriate for our students and their developmental needs. The school lunch menus are available each month on our website or alternatively from the front office.
You may also choose to send a lunch from home. A lunch brought from home should include healthy options, such as a sandwich, fruit and/or vegetables, and a drink (no sweets, chips, chocolate, cookies or soft drinks are allowed).
Whilst Foundation 2 to Year 13 students may eat lunch in the cafeteria, Foundation 1 sudents eat lunch in their classroom.
All students should bring a healthy snack and a drink from home for their morning break. We ask that families do not send sweets, chips, chocolate, cookies or soft drinks with your child but, instead, provide healthy snacks for them to eat such as fruit, granola bars, or carrot sticks, etc., along with juice, water or milk to drink.
Lunch is not the only meal served at our cafeteria; the cafeteria opens at 7:30am every school day and offers a variety of freshly baked breakfast options. Parents are always welcome to stop by for a bagel or coffee.
