Lunch & Outdoor Breaks

Lunch & Recess

Lunch at TDS is healthy and social! When the weather cooperates, all camps eat outside at designated picnic tables. Students must bring a lunch from home.  TDS encourages families to provide nutritious lunches for their child(ren). In addition to lunch, students should also bring snacks and a drink in a sealable bottle.

The second half of lunchtime includes teacher-supervised outdoor play and games. Students can choose to participate in organized sport games, enjoy the playground equipment, read a book, or sit back and talk with friends.

During lunch, students are afforded the opportunity to establish connections to other students with similar interests through a variety of activities. This sense of belonging helps students build confidence. TDS strives to develop independent learners who can self-advocate. Even during lunchtime, we are working towards this goal!
