Roncalli endorses students making the right choices in terms of what they eat and drink at the College.

It is important for students to be aware of their choices and then be empowered to make them, with the Tuck Shop offering a variety of options for students so they can eat well but also treat themselves occasionally.

The College however does not endorse the drinking of carbonated sugar drinks on site, especially 'energy drinks', and students are asked not to bring those into the College grounds. There are many dangers to consuming energy drinks with their mixture of sugar, caffeine and other stimulants. These are increased in a young persons developing mind and body. Students make their own choices after they leave home in the morning (especially on Wednesdays when some bus students choose to head to the Warehouse prior to our later start) but when in the College grounds these types of drinks are not allowed, with water freely available.

Also, whilst Year 13 students only have the privilege of going offsite at lunchtime on Tuesdays and Thursdays, any food bought offsite must be consumed offsite, as the Tuck Shop has the contract to deliver food on the College grounds.
