Students Buying Lunch in Kilbirnie
We understand that it is sometimes difficult to organise students (and their lunches) before students leave for school in the morning.
At present the College Tuck Shop is not operating.
Students have the option of ordering lunch online through EZ Lunch. To do this, use the link on the College website which you will find in LUNCHES under the STUDENTS tab. 
Alternatively, students who need to purchase lunch should do so on their way to school.
We would prefer students not to leave school grounds during lunchtime to purchase their lunch from Kilbirnie, but if this option is unavoidable, students must sign out at the office and sign back in on their return so that we know whether students are onsite or offsite.
