Ahipara School is one of many schools in the Far North that is part of a programme called Health Promoting Schools (HPS). In this programme we take a wider view of health than just care of the body. We try to consider all aspects that influence our children and to create an environment that promotes the health and well being of all students as well as all those within the school.
Ahipara School receives ‘Fruit in Schools’ which is a free donation of fruit twice a week, plus a donation of food from KidsCan for Breakfast Club such as Weetbix, milk and toast , served every morning from 8.10am to 8.35am.
From Term 2 2021 we are fortunate enough to participate in the Ka Ora Ka Ako Healthy School Lunches programme, which provides a free lunch every day for every student. Students will still need to bring a snack for morning tea and a water bottle.
We encourage our students to bring a healthy selection of food to feed their bodies and minds. Fizzy drinks, lollies, chocolate and other confectionery are not considered as lunch food and should be kept at home.
We are pleased to announce that Lunch By Libelle (Libelle Group) have been appointed as our 2021 school lunch service provider. Libelle Group has over 15 years of experience, feeding hungry tamariki healthy and nutritionally balanced kai in schools across all of Aotearoa.
