The food services team at Taipei European School delivers delicious and healthy meals that reflect the various tastes of a multicultural school population. Variety, nutrition, and balance are the criteria we embrace to ensure students’ nutritional needs are met. We believe that lunch is not just about the food, but rather it is an educational journey that supports our learners to develop a healthy lifestyle.
The school works with professional chefs and a nutritionist to customise menus and portion sizes to our students of all ages and prepare fresh, quality meals daily. Our menus run on 3-week cycles that change every season and feature international as well as traditional local meals. Fresh vegetables and fruits are used whenever possible, and many items are made from scratch. Fresh fruit is offered daily and special occasions and holidays are celebrated with special meals. Students who have dietary needs, food allergies, or food-related medical conditions are accommodated where possible.
Our food is prepared off-site daily by a professional central kitchen facility and delivered to our cafeterias for heating before serving. The kitchen is approved by the local authorities, adhering to the relevant regulations including, but not limited to, processing and preventative controls such as Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), Good Hygiene Practices (GHPs), Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) systems, SGS lab checks, and is ISO22000 certified. Their brief is to ensure all of our students have access to attractive, thoughtfully prepared, nutritious meals.
At our Secondary campus, vending machines are also available to provide fresh fruits, granola bars, milk, yogurt, and fresh bakery products to complement the individual growing needs of the students.
Lunch is ordered via our online ordering system each month in advance and costs 150 NTD per day.

A bus service is provided every day that school is in session to all the major expatriate living areas throughout metropolitan Taipei for students age 7 and above. Morning buses are scheduled to deliver students to campuses by 7:55am, ready for their first class. Afternoon buses depart our campuses at around 3:15pm. Late bus service is available for students participating in our after-school activities and depart from EPC at 4:30 pm and ESC at 4:30 pm and 6:10 pm respectively.
Routes are designed to cover as many central locations in Taipei as possible. Other destinations will be reviewed based on feasibility and are subject to change according to current demand. We operate a hybrid routing system, where popular destinations are offered via fixed route buses and other destinations will be arranged according to demand. Bus fees vary depending on the route choice.
The bus service of the Taipei European School is outsourced to a local bus company approved by the school. TES supervises service operations and reviews service contracts biannually. All bus drivers are qualified and each one is supported by a bus monitor on every trip. The buses conform to all local regulations for transportation of school children. All passengers are covered by the school’s group insurance scheme and passenger liability.
It is also important that parents read through the Bus Charter and explain it to their children, as this highlights safety issues and student conduct expectations. The Bus Charter also provides further details related to the main Bus Policy.

Taipei European School’s balanced, supportive, and challenging co-curricular programme provides opportunity for students to develop self-confidence, self-awareness, and life skills that will serve them well beyond their years at TES. The aim of our CCA programme is to offer learners the opportunity to participate in activities that support learning and help them flourish. Every year, the Student Services' CCA department works with faculty and specialist teachers /coaches /instructors to provide a wide array of after school activities.
The CCA programme is designed to provide opportunities for students to try out new activities or develop existing skills in their fields of interest. The numerous CCAs cover such areas as: sports, dance, music, the arts, general interest hobbies, STEAM, languages, and local culture.
Participation in sports includes the opportunity to compete against other schools at each age level. Our Music Departments offer individual peripatetic lessons, as well as the opportunity to join various music groups, from orchestra to choir, and other ensemble groups, all of which support the school with a variety of performances both within and outside of school.
At the start of the new academic year, the schedule of CCAs is presented to the students at the ESC and to parents at the EPC for them to choose which activities the students wish to attend, based on their interests and availability. An online system is used for students to sign up.
