I am pleased to announce that Melrose Primary School will be commencing a ‘Breakfast Club’ in Term 2 of 2016, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Breakfast Club is open to all Melrose School students and their families. In 2013 the Australian Bureau of Statistics released findings that 1 in 7 children in Australia arrives at school each day without having had breakfast, missing out on the most important meal of the day. School breakfast programs are successful at improving student nutrition and academic achievement as well as reducing student absenteeism and behaviour problems (Mills 2011).
LAUNCH There will be a Breakfast Club Easter Launch on Tuesday the 22nd of March at 8.15am-9.00am, in the Art room.
We would like to invite all Families and students of Melrose School to the Breakfast club Launch. Breakfast club is a free service to students and families of Melrose Primary School. Would also like to thank Food Bank Victoria and the Thorp and Blackley families for their kind donations which have made the Breakfast Club possibly. If there is any further inquiries about the Breakfast Club, or if you are wanting to assisting with the Club, please feel free to contact me.
Kind Regards, Kim Andersen
