School Lunches

Homemade @ Morna
Catering at Morna has become one of its best features over the last few years since we built our own kitchens, cafeteria and re-designed the dining room . Our Head chef is Omar Mendez who is a culinary whizz. Omar, who is originally from Venezuela, took on this project with gusto, he runs the kitchen to an extraordinarily high standard.
Buffet menus are designed with the approval of Sonia Torres (Nutricentre) a qualified dietitian. Omar is a qualified Sushi chef, making Sushi days legendary at Morna. Themed country days are also a weekly event, giving the children a taste into cuisines from around the globe. Omar has 7 people to manage in his team who together, provide a consistent high level of food services to our school.







Cafeteria is the other option which uses a cashless system, a bespoke system that gives students and parents a wide range of flexibility when choosing food. Orders are made in advance, either the same day before 11:50 or even multiple days in advance. Our students can also make orders on the tactile screens that are dotted around the school. During their designated time slots, students go to the cafeteria to collect their customised lunch order, using their fingerprint as the payment.



Fresh Produce
We have recently rented 10,000m2 from the neighbor at the bottom of the school grounds. We have created our own “Morna Garden Project” allowing us to grow our own fresh produce. We have added 50 chickens who live in the “Morna Chicken palace” who provide the school with all the fresh eggs that we need. We have planted over 50 trees including orange, lime, lemon, khaki, avocado, nisperos, grapefruit, plum and pomegranate. We have grown tomatoes, carrots, aubergines, lettuce, radish, beetroot and onions to mention but a few.
