The Waterford Dining Complex is a stylish and modern facility that allows our boarders to eat in a relaxed and comfortable environment.
The boys are provided with hearty and nutritious meals including breakfast, lunch (first break), afternoon tea (second break), an after school snack, dinner (which includes dessert) and an after study supper.
Weekends are a little more relaxed with a BBQ dinner on Saturday nights, brunch on Sunday mornings and roast for Sunday dinner. The menu is on a four week cycle and is audited by our catering company to ensure a well-balanced and nutritious diet. Included in that cycle is a theme night each term, for example Christmas in July, Indian Night etc which adds even more variety to the menu.
Our dining staff continue to show their professionalism and commitment, scoring 100 per cent for the third consecutive year in an external kitchen audit of food safety in 2017. While for many, boarding school food may never rate as highly as Mum's home cooking, the College prides itself on providing nutritious, hearty meals for our boarders.
Our day students also have the option to pay for the Boarders' Lunch Package, which is $5 per day paid per term (from Term 2 2019), enabling day students to have the same first break lunch as the boarding students. (Day students still need to bring food for second break.) This offers significant flexibility for families. Parents must advise our Accounts Receivables Officer Mrs Sherene Wright of your son's intention to start (or finish) taking advantage of the Lunch Package so it can be accounted for on Term fees. Day students and boarders can also take advantage of our full tuckshop menu available at the College canteen before school and at first and second break.
A sample boarding menu is available on request.
