Lunch at Sullivan
The school dining hall is known as the Silver Robin restaurant. Its lower floor provides a cafeteria-style lunch which offers those who choose to have school lunches a choice of main courses, sandwiches, fruit, desserts and soft drinks.
The upper floor is available for those who bring a packed lunch to school and also offers a range of snacks and bottled drinks for sale. The range and quality of food available have made the Silver Robin very popular with staff and pupils. The Silver Robin follows the Nutritional Standards to ensure healthy menus are provided.
The school’s cashless system is biometric which means that pupils do not need to carry a card to top up their balance or pay for school meals. A scan of their finger is taken and this is used instead of a card.
The Silver Robin operates on a cash-free basis but users must be sure to have sufficient credit on their accounts before purchasing. There are a number of ways to top up a pupil’s account for the Silver Robin:
(1) parents may remotely top up their child’s school meals account by credit or debit card through their Parentmail PMX account and receive reminders to top up when the balance is low (this has proved to be the most popular method);
(2) parents can send cheques into the accounts office to be allocated to their son’s/daughter’s school meals account;
(3) pupils may add cash to this account through two revaluator machines located within the school.
All pupils eat their lunch in the Silver Robin, except for Year 14 who can make use of the Common Room which has its own separate dining facilities. Both floors of the Silver Robin are supervised throughout lunch-time.
Parents who wish their son or daughter to go home at lunch-time should request the school’s formal permission to do so by letter to Mrs Moore, our pastoral Vice-Principal, via the Form Teacher.
The Silver Robin currently operates a tuck shop at break-time on the ground floor. Details of the day to day operation of the Silver Robin will be supplied to pupils.
