Ka ora, Ka Ako or Healthy School Lunches Programme 2024

The Healthy School Lunches programme is a universal programme that provides all taiohi / students at Thames High School with a nutritious lunch every day at no cost to parents or caregivers. More information can be found here about the programme.

We hope that the uptake for free lunches is 100% and that this makes a big change to our taiohi and their families. We’re aware that numerous families consistently prepare nutritious lunches for their children, and we anticipate this practice will persist. Nonetheless, we aspire for the program to benefit everyone and alleviate the necessity and cost associated with supplying lunches in 2024.

Lunches and snacks will be given to taiohi / students at our break times. Pyne Enterprises Ltd t/a PEL Group is the provider who will run the programme from our canteen.

Any food supplied adheres to the standards of healthy guidelines (a green, amber and red light system) as part of our commitment to the healthy lunches programme.
