Balanced & Nutritious Meal Plan
Food is one of the most important elements of boarding life – it’s certainly one of the most common questions from parents and students! We have an on-site catering team and kitchen in our dining hall, that is open 7 days a week. All boarding students enjoy a healthy breakfast every morning before school, lunch in the dining hall with school friends, and then an evening meal with their boarding colleagues.
At the weekend, boarding students enjoy a later breakfast / brunch type meal and then either have a BBQ, take-away evening or eat out as part of their social activities.
The menu is varied, developed in conjunction with the students, and rotated every 4 weeks.
Each floor of the boarding house also has its own kitchen, and students can make snacks and drinks at their leisure. Food is provided by the boarding staff, and students can request their favourite snacks.

Home away from home
The schedule that the students have when they are in the boarding house gives them opportunities to learn and acquire new skills such as time management, being independent and becoming more confident. They also learn life skills such as cooking, laundry and cleaning!
My daughter loves the pantry…boarders can freely walk in and grab some fruits, snacks, drinks when they need…..just like when they are home.
In brief, the boarding at SISD is a home from home for children!
