Lunches & Recess

It’s imperative that boys have opportunities to be themselves at UCC — and enjoy time that’s not strictly organized — on their own or with friends. Lunch and recess are both opportunities for boys to experience supervised independence on campus.

The Prep hot lunch program is offered at two dining rooms, and follows the healthy Eat Smart program developed with the Ontario government and the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Ontario.

Standard lunch menus include:

  • Meatball sub on whole wheat bun
  • Oven baked fries
  • Fresh vegetables
  • Eggplant parmesan
  • Oatmeal raisin cookies
  • Salmon skewers
  • Brown rice pilaf
  • Fresh vegetables
  • Spinach and cheese cannelloni with tomato sauce
  • Banana loaf with whole wheat flour

Alternatively, parents may enroll in the beverage program and send a lunch with their son, or opt out entirely and send a full lunch.

Breaks from studies are crucial to academic performance. Recess is always outside unless safety (either due to weather or another concern) is an issue. You would be amazed by the difference a little fresh air has on academic performance.
