The meal periods are meant to be a time of relaxation as well as a time to eat. Spectrum provides breakfast, lunch and snack on schooldays for the students. Students are offered a hot, healthy, nutritious and well balanced meal. The food is freshly prepared and cooked in the kitchen on school premises. All meals are prepared under supervision of the school dietitian in order to ensure the standards of the Ministry of Health of Kazakhstan are met appropriately. Weekly menu is available on EduPage and relevant notice board at the school. The meal is provided by a catering company that is contracted with the school. Our students can contact the company at firstname.lastname@example.org if they have any suggestions and complaints about food and its services.
Students are expected to follow the same behavior rules in the dining hall as they would in any other part of the building. In addition, students are expected to:
- Enter the dining hall orderly.
- Wash hands before and after meal.
- Practice good table manners.
- Talk quietly.
Bearing in mind that aperitifs cause appetite to diminish and are not considered healthy prior to meals, students are encouraged not to purchase anything to eat from canteen just before the meals. School strongly recommends students not to bring large amount of pocket money to school. Although there is no unhealthy food or drink (such as gum or acidic beverages) sold in the canteen, the homeroom teachers and/or teacher assistants should be informed about the student’s nutrition habits against illnesses, allergies, obesity, etc. In order to prevent our students from food poisoning, the school administration requests the students not to bring food to school without prior permission even for special occasion like birthdays and celebrations. We understand that students may wish to celebrate a birthday with some cake and pastry and, therefore, the catering company can take orders for various kinds of pastry for an additional reasonable fee. Please make such orders at the school canteen well in advance so as to make sure your order is processed on time for your special event.
