Hearty start a great way to begin an energetic school day

THERE was not a hungry belly in sight at Warwick East State School as kids devoured raisin toast, cereal, chocolate milk and more at their Wednesday morning breakfast club.

After floods destroyed the breaky room for a third time, kids enjoyed their morning meal in a brand-spanking new room with smiles on their faces.

School chaplain Donna Angell said the weekly breakfast club was a chance for students to meet in a fun environment and to ensure they had a hearty breakfast.

"We provide a fun, happy place for the kids to be together," Mrs Angell said.

"It is really happy and gives students the opportunity to have a position of responsibility

"We encourage the kids to make their own toast and get the older kids to help the younger ones."

The new kitchen has been designed to withstand another flood with roll-away benches, high cupboards and basket drawers - ready to grab in a hurry.

East student Zyetta Shephard-Picton said she loved the breakfast club, and devoured "one of each" of the breakfasts on offer.

"It's really good and it's nice of them to help us when we need it," Zyetta said.

Supplies were donated by Norco Milk, Lighthouse Centre and the local chaplaincy committee.
