They arrive at school at 7.15am with Sophie bringing a tin of milo one week and Mabel every other week.

The daily Breakfast Club feeds up to 120 students a day and comprises of a hot milo in the colder months of term’s two and three, while juice is served in term’s one and four.

Students are also offered toasted sandwiches every day.

Lue Fagan from Irrawang High School told News Of The Area, “We are also eternally grateful to the members of Raymond Terrace Lions Club who come in most days to volunteer, with another two Raymond Terrace locals Jeannie and Joannie who have been volunteering for four years as well.”

The Breakfast Club has been running for around seven years and since the school’s Principal Paul Baxter has been at the school the Breakfast Club has been running daily (from weekly).

Mr Baxter said, “For many reasons we found that students were coming to school without breakfast and that’s not an ideal learning situation.”

It’s great to see the school’s young volunteers helping their peers and the greater community. Well done and Thank You.
