Healthy Lunches

Our new lunches are a huge success, the lunches have been updated and changed.  Each child will be given a code in the next few weeks if they wish to change any part of it at home.
In September, St. Fintan's B.N.S. Mountrath will be launching their free lunches for students.  
This is a sample of the types of lunches our children will be getting each day which are healthy and nutritious.
We are very lucky to be in a position to offer this to each child.
