Byline: KELLY WILLIAMS Daily Post Chief Reporter kelly.williams@trinitymirror.com

A PRIVATE school's new PS5.5m dining hall said to offer a "five star catering experience" has opened its doors.

The facility at Ruthin School is said to be of "exceptional quality and design" and similar in standard to the Shangri-La Hotel in Hong Kong.

It will offer formal dining for 350 people as well as a cafe bar for 150.

The kitchen will serve a variety of international cuisine to suit an array of religions, cultures and tastes and be a "home away from home" for students who attend the school who are from 52 different countries. The kitchen is bespoke to suit the needs of the chef for the creation of such a varied menu and the design is intended to give students a more relaxing experience at mealtimes.

Students will have a choice from a variety of options for breakfast, lunch and the evening meal, prepared daily by the chef and his staff.

The mezzanine dining area will provide a cold food offer as well as providing the school with the option for private dining and functions.

The dining hall forms part of an ambitious expansion programme which has been carried out over seven phases.

The first phase, which is now complete, was a new girl's 40-bedroom boarding house with en-suite bedrooms.

The dining hall was the second phase and the third phase has now begun which is a new academic facility which will boast 31 classrooms, two extra science laboratories, ICT suite and large staff work room.

This new building will replace the 1960s building which is set to be demolished in July 2019.

Ruthin School currently charges up to PS14,000 a year for day pupils and PS34,500 for full boarders. The school currently has 360 pupils, having more than tripled its pupils numbers over the past eight years.
