School students tuck into delicious morning Brekky Club
BILOELA State High School students Zane Whitney, Jorja Krueger and Jack Bode were among those who dined at the school's Brekky Club at school on Wednesday morning.
The Brekky Club has been operating for about two years now and students are making the most of it.
"This is good for children who don't get a chance to get breakfast in the morning,” Jorja said.
"Most of the time I have vegemite on toast and enjoy it.”
Youth Support co-ordinator Megan Muller said the morning Brekky Club was on every Wednesday morning from 8am to 8.45am.
"This is well received by the students and the support from the teaching staff and the community has been great,” Ms Muller said.
"We go through about 10 loaves of bread each time and that's about 200 pieces of toast for them.
"It's about helping to give students a good start for the day. We get young rural students who get on the bus at 7am in the morning and they might need a top-up.”
Ms Muller also receives great help from guidance officer Teresa Riley and school chaplain Dan Gordon.
"We get donations from the community and very grateful what they do for us and the school staff will help as well,” Ms Muller said.
"There are plans to try to extend it to more days and help the students out.”
There are plenty of options on the menu for the children but Zane said he is content to stick with a traditional favourite.
"I have vegemite on toast and really that's it at breakfast time it,” he said.
