Lunchtime – Dining Hall

Children are encouraged to dine respectfully at lunchtime. The tables are set with cloths and flowers. Bowls of bread and fresh salad are laid out for the children to enjoy while they wait to be invited to receive their lunch. Quiet music is played whilst the adults encourage children to speak to one another in a calm manner and listen to the person speaking at each table.
