A nutritious, tasty, hot lunch is served to the pupils and staff every day except on Wednesday, which is a half day. The food is delivered by an excellent local caterer, which only uses the best fresh produce. The meals consist of a meat/fish dish, selection of seasonal vegetables and a carbohydrate. The school never serves pork. Other ingredients which might cause an allergic reaction, such as nuts, are also avoided, however, there is a risk of cross contamination at the supplier’s kitchen so pupils with an EpiPen must bring a packed lunch which can be heated. The children are also offered a healthy dessert of fresh fruit, apple compote or yoghurt. Water is served with the lunch and is also available throughout the day on request.
The children have a ‘Gouter’ or snack usually mid-morning, which is provided by the parents. The school encourages the parents to pack a healthy snack such as fruit or vegetables. Birthday cakes and food distributed to the class must be pre-packaged (i.e. not homemade) with all the ingredients including allergens labelled.
Please note that a vegetarian menu is available for pupils on request. The school lunch is optional and the fee is £185 per term. Please see the attached ‘food and drink’ policy for further information.
After the terrible disaster that occurred on August 4, 2020 in the Lebanese capital, the AEFE is joining the Solidarité Laïque, the Mlf, AFLEC and the ALFM Union to support a fundraising in favour of public school students of Beirut. It will thus allow them to be equipped with school supplies for the coming school year.
A limited number of places are still available for some levels. Please contact
