Who is Scots College?
Scots College believes it is important to offer a balanced nutritious diet to not only the boarding students but the visiting schools and special College events who dine with them.
Scots College is a world-class independent Presbyterian day and boarding school for boys Years 1 to 13 in Wellington. From 2020 their Senior School is changing to become co-educational welcoming girls in Years 11, 12 and 13. The Dining Hall known as Chartres Hall, caters for the over 100 boarding students who live on site and provides lunch for around another 50 more day students in Years 7 to 13. Scots is proud to have committed to only offer fresh made meals that meet the fuelled4life guidelines and support its students in getting the best balanced diet that will help them not only in meeting their educational needs but their sporting needs also.
Scots College has a diverse range of cultures and many International Students living in the boarding house. This is reflected in their menus which offer the broadest range of cuisines possible over the term and celebrate the special dates and events that fall in between.
A typical day in Chartres Hall would start with a full continental breakfast: fresh fruit salad, yoghurt, smoothies, seeded or wholemeal toast breads, a variety of different muesli and cereals, as well as scrambled and poached eggs which are always a favourite. For lunch there is a daily sandwich and salad bar with a selection of lean meats, all roasted and sliced onsite, with pitas and wraps to choose from and then two hot dishes, for example, vegetable stir fry rice or a slow cooked coconut & tamarind pork curry. In the evening a selection of lean meats like grilled fish or marinated chicken thigh are available accompanied with vegetables, salads and a carbohydrate for example roasted root vegetables or brown rice. The selection changes daily and is always seasonal and fresh. Every meal includes a selection of fruit to choose from.
