St Benedict’s School has always catered for many dietary requirements including gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian and others. Over many years we have also provided for the dietary requirements of other faiths. This includes using halal meat on request.
The school is aware that, in making a response to a specific question about catering for the needs of some of our students, the words ‘all our meat is halal’ were used. The response was specific to the question we were asked. We would like to correct any misinterpretation. All the meat served to our students of Muslim faith is halal. Halal meat is not served to other students.
Different dietary needs may be required according to medical needs, faith or personal preference and the school will, like most organisations, continue to cater for specific dietary needs wherever possible.
