Saint Paul’s recently relaunched its Breakfast Club for the students. The club is part of the Saint Paul’s healthy eating initiative, which aims to emphasise the importance of healthy eating and regular exercise to its students.
The school believes that the Breakfast Club meets a variety of important needs: it meets children’s health needs by providing a balanced meal at the beginning of the day, it meets educational needs in terms of ensuring children start the school day on time, feeling well-nourished and settled and at the same time it meets the needs of children and their families through the provision of a safe, supervised environment before school starts.
“Research has shown that a successful breakfast club can have a positive impact on attendance and improve concentration levels,” explained Mrs Karen Grix. “They can see at the club how healthy foods can be used to make enjoyable meals and snacks.”
