All students eat lunch in the mainstream school restaurant. We encourage our students to develop their functional life skills and motor skills; so, developing their eating skills and habits. Social skills are a key area of learning during this time where we aim to encourage social relationships and foster a sense of enjoyment at sitting together with friends. We see this as an important part of our teaching and learning at school and, for this reason, all staff take lunch with the students so they are able to model and support this learning.
