Cashless Catering

DSC_0159

The school’s catering team offers pupils a breakfast service before the start of the school day, a range of healthy, hot & cold snacks and drinks at morning interval, and a wide variety of lunch options.

All Aberdeenshire secondary pupils now use a “cashless catering” system to purchase drinks, snacks and meals from the catering service. This means that money must be preloaded onto pupils’ NEC cards, either through parents using Aberdeenshire’s online payments system, or by the pupil using one of the “revaluation” units in school to put cash onto their card.

The online payments system also has the advantage that parents have the facility to check the purchase history, allowing you to monitor (if desired) what your child is purchasing in school to eat and drink.

Remember that if you are coming into the campus during the day, perhaps to use the library or the swimming pool, our campus community cafe is open from Monday to Saturday from 10am to 2pm. (The cafe accepts cash payments.)
