School Lunches

Our cafeteria at NAISR is known as ‘Tjeerd’s Place’ and is part of VRC Catering, which has been catering international schools and local Dutch schools in the Netherlands for over 30 years.

At NAISR, Tjeerd’s Place serves around 300 students and staff per day and offers a full range of international style foods. Every day Tjeerd’s Place offers a healthy school menu including both cold and hot options.

We work to ensure that the lunch and snack options from the cafeteria are healthy, balanced and appropriate for our students and their developmental needs. The monthly 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 Year 1 to Year 13 students may eat lunch in the cafeteria, Foundation 1 and 2 students eat lunch in their classroom, where there is a chance to practice table manners and have quiet conversation.

All students need to bring a healthy snack and a drink from home for their morning recess. The morning snack is not included in the lunch ticket. We ask that you 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 and coffee.


Our school uses the lunch card system called ‘MyCashless’, which allows parents to top up money on their child’s lunch card online. Children are able to purchase a school lunch from the monthly menu or choose to eat A La Carte with this card. Cashless Cards can be purchased directly from Tjeerd in the cafeteria for a one-off fee of €2.75 and cards can be kept for the entire duration of your child’s stay at NAISR. Parents of Foundation 1 - Year 6 students are advised to activate and upgrade credit immediately once purchased, as the card will then need to be returned to school the following school day. The cards will be kept in the cafeteria and managed daily by Tjeerd. Secondary students will be responsible for their own cards. Secondary school students, staff and parents are also able to purchase products with pin or cash.

The costs for students are as follows:

  • Early Years €3.60 per school lunch menu
  • Year 1 - Year 6 €3.85 per school lunch menu
  • Secondary students may buy the daily plate (big plate is €3,60 en small plate €2,75), or choose to eat A La Carte. Prices vary with quantity and selections. 

We encourage parents to activate the automatic top-up setting, to ensure that you will never have an insufficient balance on your child's lunch card. The automatic top up recharges your account whenever your balance falls below zero, and also reduces the top up charge from 50c to 30c each time. 

Automatic Top Up Instructions can be found below.

Lost card? With MyCashless, parents are able to withdraw money and cancel their card via www.mycashless.nl or via the MyCashless App and new Cashless Cards can be purchased at the cafeteria.
