St John’s School operates on a continental day and therefore the students do not get to experience traditional school diners. Instead we have a tuckshop which is operated on as near a ‘not for profit basis’ as is possible, by our tuckshop manager Robin Millard. Any profits made are ploughed back into the school fund to buy rewards and other things for the students.
Students can access the tuckshop during three times in the day; before school for basic breakfast such as milk and cereal and at both breaks for a range of drinks, fruit, sandwiches, pasta pots and other basic snacks. In winter, warm foods are available such as soup and baked potatoes, whilst in summer, a small selection on freshly made wraps are usually available.
A good range of food can be purchased each day for between €1.50 and €2.
