Lunchtime should be an important part of the day for everyone. Healthy, nourishing and delicious food, pleasant surroundings, a convivial atmosphere – students and adults together, chatting and enjoying their time, benefit us all.

We teach excellent table manners and expect them to be used at all times; we also spend time in and out of the classroom discussing and considering the cultural and nutritional aspects of food with our students. Our school food is all prepared fresh every day in the Junior School kitchens by Epicure, an outstanding company that deals specifically with international schools in Thailand.  All students are required to eat school lunch, unless they have a special exemption for religious or severe dietary reasons.  In general, both faith-based and allergy-based requirements are catered for within the available menu. Students in Pre-Nursery, Nursery and Reception eat in their own charming Early Years Dining Hall on the ground floor of the Junior School building; from Year 1, everyone eats in the Junior Dining Hall, located between the Junior School and the Swimming Pool complex. All weekly menus are published in advance here; costs are show below.

To support the health, safety and wellbeing of all our students and staff, Wellington College has an excellently equipped Health Centre, which is run by fully-qualified nursing professionals. The Centre is located on the First Floor of the Admin Building, directly above the Admissions Office.

The Health Centre holds copies of the confidential medical records of every student, information supplied by parents via the Health and Medical Declaration Form completed at the point of entry to the School. The Health Centre attends to injuries or illnesses according to clear guidelines and will often contact parents during, or even prior to, this process. It is, therefore, very important that the School holds current contact details for all parents/guardians. If children become ill during school time, parents are contacted and asked to collect them. If a child sustains a minor injury, parents are informed by either phone or email, depending on the severity. In cases of injury that require immediate hospital treatment, parents are contacted and an ambulance called. In most cases, the child will be taken to Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital near the School. If a child has been prescribed medication by a doctor that needs to be administered during the school day it should be brought into school, clearly labelled in English with the child’s name, class, time, dosage and an indication of the purpose of the medication. This should be marked for the attention of the school nurse – your child’s teacher will pass this on to the Health Centre. Items such as Ventolin inhalers may be left, clearly labelled with the child’s name, in the care of the class teacher as well as the Health Centre, to be on hand immediately if required. It is the responsibility of parents to ensure their child and the school has adequate supplies of the medication they need.

Wellington College has partnered with Bangkok’s largest and most reputable school bus provider, Montri Transportation, to offer a safe and convenient bus service for students at great value for money. We will provide ‘home to school’ and ‘school to home’ services throughout the new school year starting in September. Families will be able to choose daily round trips to and from home, or daily single trips to or from home.

All buses have air-conditioning, adjustable safety belts, CCTV, mobile phones, trunked radio systems and options for tracking the bus’s GPS coordinates as it transports your child to and from school. Additionally, each bus journey is supervised by an experienced, fully-trained Bus Monitor.
