Georgie Taylor, Edward School principal Joy Soper and Trinity Larcombe are looking forward to the return of the breakfast program in Term 3.
When Edward Public School students return to the classroom next Tuesday the daily breakfast program will be up and running again.
Relying on parent assistance, school principal Joy Soper said enough help has been offered to ensure the program can continue this year.
Parents will work with Student Representative Council students to provide the program.
‘‘The breakfast program started in its current form last year,’’ Ms Soper said.
‘‘It encourages students to be involved in the provision of a service for others, building social competency at the same time.
‘‘The program was reintroduced due to a small need to make sure children get the brain food they need for healthy learning.
‘‘A lot of students that come early to school, particularly those on the bus who may travel up to 30 minutes, don’t have time to have a proper breakfast in the mornings.
‘‘During the winter months, we ensure there’s something nice and warm for them when they arrive.’’
Ms Soper says breakfast is available for all children who attend the school, and said it helps build relationships.
‘‘It’s a friendly program because it encourages the children to socialise over breakfast,’’ she said.
‘‘With parents assisting, we’re also building relationships within the school community.’’
Breakfast will be available each school day of Term 3. For more information about the program and how you might be able to help, please contact the school on 5881
