Horsham West and Haven Primary School is fortunate to be involved in the School Breakfast Club program.
Foodbank Victoria are the providers of this great opportunity. We 100% agree with their statement: In addition to removing the barrier to learning when a child is hungry, creating a safe and social Breakfast Club environment for students has other benefits too. Positive relationships are being built between peers, staff and volunteers. The program fosters student leadership through roles at the Breakfast Club. Some schools have even report improved punctuality and attendance as a result of having a Breakfast Club.
Currently, Breakfast club runs for two mornings a week at the West campus and one morning at the Haven campus. As part of the program, each class is also provided with fruit for a class fruit bowl.
