If you were to drop by the NEGS historic dining hall during meal time, it would be a play on more senses than just your taste buds. The lively chatter of hundreds of hungry school students fill the room, while boarders and day-students alike queue for a home-style lunch before taking their seats at communal tables. The students tuck into restaurant quality offerings prepared by a crack team of chefs who turn out an average of 135,000 meals annually.
Our regional day and boarding school for girls, and day school for boys and girls in junior school, knows just how important nutrition is for growing minds and bodies, as well as the all-important sense of joy which needs to be spread liberally when it comes to sharing a meal. Our recipe for success is simple; our trained chefs Nick Love and Craig Harris from Paddock2Table use only fresh, delicious ingredients with a nod towards sustainability and an eye on food miles. They design a new menu weekly, with a juicy blend of nourishing food and innovative dishes.
