Cashless Cafeteria For Hungry Kids

An innovative new Food Court is officially opening its doors tomorrow (Wednesday 24th April) to cater for hungry youngsters at St. Joseph's Comprehensive School in Hebburn.

With a Pizza and Hot Bake Bar, Burger Bar, Traditional Food Bar, Baked Potato Bar, Sandwich, Salad and Cold Drinks Bar, Hot Drinks Machine and Ice-Cream Dispenser the new style Food Court has something for everyone.

Payment is simple as the pupils use swipe cards to pay for their food. Cash can be loaded onto cards with money from the youngsters, or parents can send in a cheque and the school will credit the card. Parents can also put a limit on how much their child can spend each day. Pupils receiving free school meals have money loaded onto their card at lunchtime every day and they can also add money to their cards if they want anything extra.

Barbara Hughes, Executive Director Lifelong Learning and Leisure and Councillor Ron Reynolds, Lead Member for Lifelong Learning are cutting a ribbon to perform the official opening.
