A school’s breakfast club has been given a cash boost to help pupils get the most important meal of the day.

Kingsbury High School received the grant of £200 from food company Kellogg’s to help support the school’s breakfast club.

The club was set up in January and the school says it has been extremely popular with both staff and students.

Year 8 pupil Jessica Ablampah said “I think eating breakfast is essential to helping students through the school day.

“When you don’t eat breakfast you don’t feel as awake and ready to learn and you are not able to concentrate during lessons.

“I prefer eating breakfast in school because it is more quick and efficient; the breakfast is really nice and I really enjoy it.

“You get to talk more to the canteen staff which is lovely. The service is good, the food is excellent and, personally, I really enjoy it.”

Rose Aidoo, who runs the breakfast club, said “I love running the breakfast club. It provides students with a homely and social environment.

“The kids are so nice, they talk to me a lot and it has been great getting to know them. I would love for more students to come because we have so much to offer.”

The money has been spent on a industrial toaster and crockery for use at the club.
