"I like the fact the school has a broad mix of students, everyone has a different background and comes from a different part of Sweden or the rest of the world. " Olivia, ninth grade student
Lunch in school
The school lunch is an integral part of the students' daily work at our school. Our ambition is that each student can have a relaxing moment when eating with their classmates. The teachers and staff, in general, eat lunch with the students every day and encourage them to create a pleasant atmosphere in our Dining Hall. Two main courses, as well as a vegetarian course, are served daily. In addition to the main courses, there is also a large salad buffet with bread. As for drinks, the students can choose between milk and fresh water. We strive to have a calm environment in all parts of the school including the Dining Hall. Our wish is that the students take ownership of the Dining Hall and we encourage the students to keep good order at their tables and to clean up after themselves.
Our Food Council
IES Karlstad has a Food Council which meets twice per term with the Principal, Mr Dahlin. The council consists of students from every year group, the school nurse and the Chef, Mr Ekbåge. We discuss topics such as the quality of food, allergies, the eating environment, requests from students and the daily menu.
