NIST Catering

Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.
– Hippocrates

 

NIST employs a full-time, in-house catering team that operates the school cafeteria, as well as kiosks and cafés around the campus. NIST Catering provides a fresh, creative and nutritious approach to cafeteria catering, built on the fundamental belief that food should be healthy and that school lunch should be a time everyone looks forward to and enjoys. Students at NIST can enjoy fresh, locally sourced produce and a wide range of dishes that meet the dietary needs and tastes of a diverse, international community.

NIST Catering prepares as many dishes as possible in our in-house kitchen, avoiding ready-made ingredients that are high in preservatives, salts, MSG and additives, as well as foods that must be transported long distances. This allows the staff to reduce waste and reduce its ecological footprint while providing healthy, nutritious options. This effort to implement sustainable solutions includes sourcing some of its vegetables from GreeNIST, the school’s rooftop garden.

By utilizing on online system payment system, Campus Online, parents can view and top up their children’s accounts, set spending limits, place orders (for elementary school students), and track what their children have been eating (for secondary school students). Funds can also be added to accounts with cash through the kiosks in the cafeteria and The Hub Lounge.

The IB Mission at NIST Internation School in Bangkok

The IB Mission

The International Baccalaureate does not represent only a curriculum, but also a mission to transform the world through education by fostering thoughtful, principled learners.

An Education that Inspires & Enriches

Though we have cultivated a reputation for excellence in academics, we believe education is inextricably tied to wellbeing, character and action. Through learning comes joy.

A Lasting Impact, Service Learning at NIST International School in Bangkok

A Lasting Impact

Many of our alumni go on to work for NGOs and non-profits, become activists and reformers, and even create their own social enterprises.

Transforming Lives through Service

We believe service must be woven into the fabric of our learning, not as single projects or donations, but rather as the core means through which we translate learning into sustained action.
