We believe that it is essential to ensure that our pupils eat well throughout the school day, which led us to choosing Aden – a world-leading food service company with over 20 years of operational experience in China – as Wellington College’s catering services provider.

All pupils are required to eat school lunches, except for those who have special exceptions, such as religious or medical reasons. Any reason for not being able to eat school lunches will require official documentation and permission from the pupils head of school.  Pupils in years 1 and 2 eat in our second dining hall, with lunch being served to them at the table. Pupils in year 3 and above dine in our main dining hall. Early Years pupils will have lunch in their own dining hall and lunch boxes are provided for pupils in Nursery and Reception. In addition to lunch, snacks are also provided.

Parents are encouraged to provide a healthy and filling mid-morning snack for their child(ren). Please be aware that for health reasons, Wellington endeavours to be a nut-free school and therefore foods containing nuts are not permitted on campus.

The lunch fee can be settled either annually, termly or by parents making regular top ups online or at the V&A Café on the third floor of the Wellington Sports and Performing Arts Building. If payments are made online on the School Payment Portal website, parents can also check balances and request the issuance of an electronic fapiao. Upon a payment being made to Aden, the requisite amount of credit will be registered onto a pupil’s school ID card.

Pupils need to swipe their school ID cards for daily lunch consumption. Pupils can also spend their credit to purchase snacks during morning break (Upper Prep pupils and above). Parents can check the expenditure of their child’s consumption using the online lunch payment system.

If there is any credit remaining on the pupil’s ID card at the end of the academic year, the balance can be carried forward to the next academic year.

The standard daily cost for lunch is RMB33.00 and provides one of the following lunch options:

  • Western, Asian, Mediterranean or noodles set menus: one main course dish with meat or fish, vegetables and carbohydrate, one dessert/fresh fruit, one drink, and access to the salad bar;
  • Customised Sandwich Set Menu: one sandwich, one dessert/fresh fruit, one drink and access to the salad bar.

We have food committee that consists of parents and staff representatives. The food committee offers all parties the chance to give feedback directly to Aden and regular surveys are taken and acted upon. Pupils also get an opportunity to provide feedback via the student council.
