School dinners

School dinners are available for all P2 and P3 pupils from 1st September and for P1 pupils from Monday 28th September. Dinners cost £2.50 per day but dinners must be pre-ordered so money should be sent in each Monday morning in a named, clearly marked envelope. As dinners are recorded at class and office level, a separate envelope per child is required. Cheques can be made payable to "Education Authority" or cash can be sent in.
