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
