School Meals

At DBSJP, we believe in a healthy and balanced lifestyle for our students. Our on-site canteen is run by Leela's Lunches, offering students healthy and comprehensive meals, snacks and beverages, including a 3 course healthy lunch. Alternatively, students may bring their own lunchboxes.
