The School Breakfast Clubs program seeks to improve educational outcomes by offering free and healthy food for students in 1,000 Victorian government schools.
Breakfast clubs build connections with students, enabling schools to create safe and welcoming spaces, where children and families can connect with volunteers, teachers and the broader school community.
Significant impact on student learning
Research undertaken in 2019 by Victoria University found the following benefits for schools with this program.
Teachers report that breakfast clubs have had a significant impact on student learning:
- 95% of teachers note an improvement in concentration
- 90% have observed greater levels of engagement and focus for students who attend
- 88% of teachers report improvement in student social skills
- 85% of teachers note a positive impact on the academic outcomes of students who attend
This indicates that the combined improvement in concentration, engagement, social skills and other educational factors has had a positive effect on students’ capacity to learn and their educational outcomes.
We are delighted to be able to offer this service to our students.
