Following the introduction of a Healthy Eating Policy earlier this year, a Healthy Eating Policy Review (HEPR) Committee was established involving nominated parents and teaching staff, representatives from the PA Committee and Board of Management, an expert in childhood nutrition Dr. Evelyn Hannon and independent Chairperson, Mr. John O’ Byrne.
The objective of the HEPR Committee was to review the Healthy Eating Policy by considering national healthy eating guidelines & good practice and the feedback from the school community in order to produce a revised and updated Healthy Eating Policy.
That work has been completed and a revised policy has been drafted. The Board of Management is now seeking comments and/ or suggestions from members of the school community before a finalised policy is finalised and ready for implementation hopefully early in 2017.
The Parents’ Association Committee has been asked by the school to seek comments and/ or suggestions from parents before the review process proceeds any further.
You are invited to review the Revised Healthy Eating Policy on the 'News' homepage of the school website. Comments and suggestions should be made by email to (email address to follow) before Thursday 22nd December 2016.
