          Various topics are discussed and suggestions are made. 

          Our SNAG rep liaises with the School Council.

          • Anybody can become a SNAG member at the start of the year.

                • We choose the theme days for the whole school year.
                • We have reviewed the salad bar and sandwiches selection.
                • The break time was extended by 5 minutes at the start of this school year as the SNAG members realised that 15 minutes was not enough to go to the canteen and enjoy a snack and a drink with friends.
                • Also, some pupils, who have lunch over break time, did not have enough time.
                • There are some Healthy Eating posters at the entrance of the canteen.
                • We produced a whole School Food Survey and the feedback was shared with the canteen staff to improve what pupils wanted.
