Ordering Lunch
Students in Prep to Grade 6 can order lunch using the forms posted on the School Brochures page on the CDNIS website.

Students in Grade 7 to Grade 12 can purchase their lunches at the cafeterias on a daily basis. Cash and Octopus are welcome for payment.

Lunches from Home
Many students choose to bring lunch from home. There are several microwave ovens available in each cafeteria for reheating food. To minimize packaging waste and support our efforts to be a Green School, we ask that CDNIS families send “Litterless Lunches” to school. Here are a few tips for packing a Litterless Lunch:

  • Use a reusable lunch bag or box.
  • Use reusable containers for packing food, and avoid plastic wrap, foil, plastic bags, single-serving containers, pre-packaged foods.
  • Reusing plastic containers (such as take out containers or yogurt tubs) are an excellent option.
  • Use reusable drink containers such as thermoses or reusable water bottles, and avoid single-use pop cans, plastic bottles, and juice boxes.
  • Non-disposable cutlery (silverware) and a cloth napkin.
  • Please ensure reusable items from home are labelled with your child’s name.

Drinking Water
Drinking water is provided throughout the school. Please send water bottles to reduce the number of paper cups used and to ensure your child is hydrated during warm weather. Please label all water bottles with your child’s name.
