Report about the School Canteen

I am writing this report is to draw your attention regarding the school canteen. Many of the students of
Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Permata are unhappy about the conditions at the school canteen. There were
lots of complaints regarding this issue.
In the first place, there are insufficient tables and benches. Our school has a student population of
over 1 000. There is only one period of recess time for all forms. More than 80 per cent of the students go to the
canteen during recess to buy food and drinks. Unfortunately, there are only about twenty-five tables and fifty
benches which can accommodate less than half the number of students. As a result, many students have to stand
while eating.
The food sold at the canteen not only expensive but lacks of variety. The menu is the same every day. For
the past five years, ever since the present canteen management took over, students go back to the same food.
The hygiene and preparation of food leave a lot to be desired. The food and drinks are not covered. They
way canteen attendants dress speak volume about hygiene. With their lackadaisical attitude, the food they sell
would one way or the other become contaminated.
My fourth complaint about the canteen pertains to the etiquette of the canteen workers. They are rude and
arrogant. They often shout at students. The students are always on the receiving end of their bad moods.
We hope that conditions at the canteen will improve. The canteen should provide better amenities. There
should also be a different menu everyday so that students will not have to taste the same food day in and day out.
Cleanliness should be given top priority.
We hope that you will look into our complaints and take steps to remedy the situation. The students are
prepared to boycott the canteen if their complaints go unheeded.
