School Store

Students who have already signed in to the Junior or Senior School can access either store by knocking on the door. Each store has a limited capacity, so there may be a wait. However, we will do our best to serve you in a timely manner.

For parents who need access to either of the stores, we are currently booking appointments, with Senior School appointments being reserved for new families only. Please see below for contact information.

Food Services

Variety, nutrition, and balance are the criteria that Sodexo — the St. George’s food services contractor — embraces to ensure students’ nutritional needs are met. Our onsite Red Seal-certified chefs prepare fresh, quality meals daily and have customized menus specifically for our St. George’s boys and community. Our menus run on 3-week cycles that change every term and feature international as well as traditional local meals.

St. George’s School offers a variety of Food Service options to ensure that the nutritional needs of boarders, day students, employees, and guests are met. Offerings include a Hot Lunch Program at the Senior School, a Hot Lunch Program at the Junior School, a 7-day per week Boarding Student Meal Program, and the Senior School Saints Café kiosk (retail).

Transportation

St. George’s School operates eight daily bus routes covering the Metro Vancouver area. All of the routes are under contract by Thirdwave Bus Services, with the exception of the UBC route operated by St. George’s School.

List of 2 items.

  • Allergies and Anyphalaxis

    The School is nut-aware and makes every effort to minimize exposure to allergens at school. Students with a history of Anaphylaxis should be identified and carry an EpiPen injector at all times. The School provides EpiPens to be used in case of an emergency and educates teachers on how to use them.
  • Concussion Management

    Student-athletes can suffer concussions during the school year while participating in sports and activities. Please report all concussions to Student Health and your son’s Head of Grade or homeroom teacher. Students suspected to have suffered a concussion or who have reported symptoms suggestive of a concussion will be referred for a medical exam. When necessary, the nursing staff, athletic coaches, or trainers will contact parents to make the referral or report the injury. If you are concerned your son may have suffered a concussion, please have him assessed by a doctor and inform Student Health.

    All students diagnosed with a concussion will be considered off-games until cleared by the family or emergency physician and a medical clearance note is provided. While your son recovers, symptoms can interfere with school performance and limit participation in activities. Your son’s Head of Grade or homeroom teacher will be notified of these limitations, and your son will be supported as needed. All students wanting to return to games will need to present a doctor’s note to Student Health, clearing them for play. The School follows Return to Play guidelines and a Return to Learn plan. Students who continue to report concussions or are observed to have ongoing concussion symptoms will be referred back to their doctor.

Health Services

Students who are unwell or require medical attention while on campus may report to the Nurse's Office. The Junior School Nurse's Office is located in Harker Hall and is staffed Monday to Thursday from 7:00 am to 8:00 pm and Fridays from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm. At the Senior School, Ms. Bodutch, Head of Student Health, is available Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm.

If your son requires care beyond what the nurses can provide, parents will be contacted. Nurses refer to the medical information provided to the School, so please ensure this information is kept up-to-date by contacting Student Health. Please alert us to any new accommodations that must be made for school or games involvement.

Issues and concerns can be reported by phone at 604-221-3696 or email at kbodutch@stgeorges.bc.ca.
