Trudie and Rodney Jenner from Woolworths MarketPlace Raymond Terrace played Santa to the students at Irrawang High School when they arrived to cook up bacon and egg rolls for Breakfast Club.

In addition to the delicious, fresh cooked rolls, the students were served Juice, candy canes and a HUGE tub of chocolates from the naughty but nice Santas helpers.

Irrawang High Community Liaison Officer Lue Fagan told News Of The Area, ” We were thrilled when Woolworths at MarketPlace offered to cook a special BBQ for the last Breakfast Club of the year.”

“Not only did they cook, but they brought everything with them to do so.”

“We very much value this wonderful community partnership,” she said.

“The smells wafting down the playground to the arriving buses had the students running up to enjoy the feast!” she added.

The students relaxed while breakfast was cooked, playing card games of Chinese Snap and just sitting around having a chat, which many of the students reflected was one of the highlights. .

Lue Fagan said, “A huge thanks to Rodney and Trudy for volunteering their time and cooking skills, and to Woolworths for providing everything to make this possible.”

“Also a big thanks to Renee and all the volunteers who come along at 7am every Tuesday to prepare food for Breakfast Club.”

The Breakfast Club is a project that has been running now at Irrawang High School for a number of years.

It is an invaluable program, providing a nutritious breakfast for students, ensuring they start the day off on the right foot.
