Meal times in the boarding house are a key time of the day. It is a time when boarders of all ages and backgrounds meet to share the experiences of their day and enjoy the family atmosphere of the boarding house.
The meals provided are tasty and nutritious and served in the new refectory. There are always two options for each meal and the menu is carefully chosen to provide a balanced and nutritious diet to our boys.
In addition to this, boarders are able to use the kitchen in their free time after prep and can store food in the fridges in the boarding house kitchen.
There are several reps that make up the Boarding Council. The aim of the Boarding Council is to provide a 'student voice' that allows the views and opinions of our boarding students to be heard. One such rep is the Food Rep.
"My role as the Food Rep is to meet regularly with the catering team to discuss the boarding students' food requirements in the house. It is important that the meals provided not only tastes great but also are healthy and balanced."

Boarding students take pride in cooking for the boarding house at weekends. In small teams, boarders are given a budget and expected to plan and cook meals on Friday and Saturday nights for the boarding house. It is important that our students are humble and ready for life after their time at Beechen Cliff.
