Primary School Meals
I am writing to inform you that with effect from Wednesday 18 August 2010 the price of a meal will increase to £1.85. This has been agreed by Aberdeen City Council to reflect increases in food costs.
School meals provide a third of the daily nutritional requirements needed for growth and development of primary and secondary school pupils. School meals also represent excellent value for money.
Meals are purchased through a Meal Ticket System where tickets are sold either singly or in books of 10, available at schools from the school catering staff who prefer purchases to be made on a Monday morning. Payment can be in cash or by cheque, with cheques made payable to “Aberdeen City Council”. From August 2010 books of lunch tickets can also be purchased from The Point (adjacent to St Nicholas House) and Kincorth, Mastrick and Woodside Customer Access Points. Payment for books of tickets at these offices can be by cash, cheque, debit or credit card. The opening times for each of these offices are detailed below:
The Point Monday to Friday: 9am to 5pm
Ground Floor, St. Nicholas House
Kincorth Customer Access Point Monday to Friday: 9am to 4.30pm
Provost Watt Drive Saturday: 10am to 12.30pm
Mastrick Customer Access Point Monday to Friday: 8.30am to 5pm

Mastrick not open until 10am to allow for
Woodside Customer Access Point Monday to Friday: 9am to 4pm
Pre-purchased ‘blue’ tickets will be accepted along with an additional 15p per ticket, paid to the school kitchen, up until Friday 10 September 2010.
Aberdeen City Council have implemented recommendations contained within The Nutritional Requirements for Food and Drink in Schools (Scotland) Regulations 2008 and is committed to encouraging healthy eating. I trust that you are finding the copies of school menus that are sent home informative and useful to encourage your children to eat a balanced diet over the week.
The School Meals Catering Service would like to thank you for your continued support and we look forward in the forthcoming year to providing our services to you.
