The Breakfast Club continues at Oakbank Area School on a weekly basis every Friday morning between 8.00am and 8:45am, for students who arrive at school and enjoy freshly cooked pancakes, fresh fruit and Milo.
The Breakfast Club is supported and run by the school and volunteers from Balhannah Uniting Church.
It is coordinated by Ron and Cherie Pitcher (church members) and Rev Michael Duke who come in each week to make the pancakes.
The church fund the ingredients and up to 15 other members of the Balhannah Uniting Church volunteer their time to help at the Breakfast Club.
The vision behind the Breakfast Club has been to provide nutrition for the children, but also to contribute to the positive community at Oakbank Area School.
Breakfast Club has proven to be a huge success so far, with approximately one third of the school attending each Friday.
The ‘Green Room’, where Breakfast Club is held, is permanently set up with card tables and chairs and an urn for warm drinks.
Some students have been arriving at school early to make sure they have time for pancakes!
