Our catering department awarded top score
The school’s catering team has just been awarded the highest score in Conwy County Council’s Scores on the Doors project.
The Council’s environmental health offices run the project annually – a random, unplanned visit inspecting the premises and looking at staff, training, hygiene practises, food premises. Kitchens are scored on a scale of 1 to 5; 5 being the highest or very good.
After inspection, both senior and prep were awarded the highest score possible, with certification for both schools, which can be viewed online at the Conwy County Council website. In a school where up to 1500 meals are freshly prepared daily, plus catering for sporting events and external functions, this is a great performance. We are delighted to have had recognition for our standards.
Pupils enjoy a wide range of items daily including covering the diversity of dietary requirements and cultural diversity. The food is so wholesome, healthy, substantial and satisfying that the domestic bursars, Julie Chmara and catering manager Mark Petch, lay claim to fame of feeding the Canadian international rugby players (over 21s) on their stays in Wales each winter season. This has prepared the department for nurturing the needs and requirements of the rugby academy boys, who have recently joined the school as part of the WRU development programme.
