Today Rockingham Beach Primary School received a generous donation of a six slice toaster from Rotary Club Rockingham for their weekly Breakfast Club! Staff and students are very thankful for the donation and excited to get toasting! Breakfast Club is a valued program at the school that continues to provided breakfast for students in need as well as giving year 6’s responsibility in being a “Breakfast Club Helper”.
“Thanks to Rotary; having this new toaster, the students spend less time waiting for toast as we can pump out more in the limited time frame we have,” said YouthCARE chaplain Mel!
Breakfast Clubs are an important program run in hundreds of WA state schools. They provide a much needed meal for many students and have shown to significantly increase concentration in the classroom. The program also gives YouthCARE chaplains an opportunity to build relationships with students outside of the classroom, in a less formal setting.
