The school canteen

 

For students of a generation ago, the canteen of our school would have sounded strange and for parents atrocious. But any school today without a canteen has something curious about it. The school canteen serves students and members of the staff, with light refreshment in hygienic condition. Somehow children want to eat and when there is no provision in school, they buy things from street vendors and that way spoil their health. But they can get clean things from the school canteen now. The members of the staff also can have their cup of coffee or soft drinks. Yet there is objection from the parents that the school canteen encourages boys to spend a lot on eating. This should not be a very serious objection, when the overall advantages are considered.

Our principal is a forward looking gentleman. He always welcomes new and good ideas. So when somebody suggested that there could be an improvement in the facilities available at the school canteen, he jumped at the idea. The result has been our present improved canteen. There the food is always fresh and clean, and served in disposable containers. The prices and quality are reasonable and there are sufficient types of food to cater for the needs of the pupils. Pupils' suggestion for more variety in the food is always welcome.

The canteen is run by different stall-holders. The food is cooked under strict supervision. Every effort is made to ensure that students get the best food at the cheapest rate. Fruits like bananas, oranges, and dry fruits are also sold. During the interval, there is a great rush but boys behave themselves and the service is not a problem. The prefects have worked out an excellent system for supervising pupils and for maintaining good discipline. The class prefects deserve to be complimented for planning the method which is working smoothly.

The canteen is also a place for gossip. When there is leisure time, members of the staff would be seen in the canteen sipping tea and talking over that.

Students stay in the school almost every day for five or six hours continuously, with little break during the time. Hence to have something to fill their hungry stomach in between is not a luxury but a necessity.
