SCHOOL dinners at one Oxfordshire primary are set to get a high-tech twist.

Pupils in Carterton will soon be able to use touch-screen technology to collect their lunches.

St John The Evangelist CE Primary School has reassigned its catering contract to Dolce Ltd, which will take it on from April 1.

In a latter to parents last week, the school said benefits include being able to choose pupils’ meals from home and collect them at the counter using a touch-screen pad.

It said another benefit was being able to pay for meals online and that Dolce is in charge of chasing up any missed payments, which will ‘allow the school office staff to carry out other duties within the office'.
