Food and nutrition

Fresh and healthy food

All boarding students enjoy a wide variety of fresh and nutritious meals, prepared at our own kitchen facilities.

The kitchen staff at Haileybury Rendall School are aware of the relationship between a well-balanced diet and student physical and emotional well-being. As a result, they work diligently to meet the needs and requirements of all our boarders. Our contemporary menu reflects the various tastes and cultures that make up the Northern Territory.

Meals

Mealtimes are an important part of the day as they provide all members of our community with an opportunity to sit and spend time together. It is often during these occasions that we can form connections to each other. The kitchen serves three meals a day, and students are also supplied with a late supper.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served in the Mayuma Dining Hall. Mayuma is a modern and comfortable space, which all students and staff in the Senior School have access to. All boarding students are required to attend the mealtimes outlined below:

Special dietary requirements

Food in residences

Our Boarding houses also have kitchenette facilities which the students may have access to. This is particularly useful for our Senior students who may be engaged in their studies throughout the course of the evening.
