Canteen Service

Food Excellence is a locally operated catering and training business. They specialise in providing good food to schools. Their emphasis is on providing a complete food service both in meal and snack format. They offer students the ability to order online, using their own Food Excellence debit smart card system. The system enables the student/parent to order a week or day in advance. Each Friday, they post the following week's menu offering a different hot dish every day. Choose the dish of the day, filled roll, wrap of choice and add a healthy beverage or snack. The next day simply collect the food which will already be prepared and waiting. Students can also simply walk up to the counter and order by just tapping the card. Cash is also acceptable - though we do not advise bringing cash to school. HOT DISHES MUST BE PRE-ORDERED. All other menu items can be purchased both ways - pre-ordered or purchase at the counter.

Benefits of using the card include:

  • Setting a daily spend limit on the card

  • Monitoring what your child is consuming

  • Overdraft facility of €5 in case you forget to top up the card.

  • No queuing or wasting time on a short lunch-break.

  • Special queue for collecting your order
