(goo-tay; French to taste)
Goûter is a long-standing tradition in Sacred Heart schools. In days of the boarding schools, when it was not uncommon for classes to meet until five o’clock in the afternoon, it was necessary to provide the students with a mid-afternoon snack. Later, as the schools grew, the cost and logistics of providing daily goûter became too complex.
Today, goûter, is a special treat to which students in Sacred Heart schools look forward on special feast days and holidays.
