Congratulations to the winners of the 2017 KickStart Breakfast Awards!
The KickStart Breakfast programme is a partnership between local communities, NZ Government, and corporate companies. KickStart is in 948 schools nationwide, giving kids that need it most a nutritional and encouraging start to their day.
KickStart Breakfast Club of the Year
Manurewa Intermediate School - pictured above - won the Breakfast Club of the Year!
The students own the breakfast club and run it under the school’s volunteer’s guidance. By introducing the “whānau points” system, the club was able to overcome some of the issues around attendance.
This breakfast club is a special place for kids; they not only enjoy the healthy breakfast but also have the opportunity to sit down with their teachers and peers and build positive and supportive relationships.
