A Plaistow school’s breakfast club has received an award nod as part of a national competition run by cereal brand Kellogg’s.
St Helen’s Catholic Primary School, based in Chargeable Lane, could be in line for a £1,000 cash prize or a £5,000 breakfast club makeover if named the UK Grand Winner at the annual Breakfast Club Awards 2017 next Monday.
The school was shortlisted in the London category of the annual competition, which champions the scheme’s people and activities.
Around 50 children attend St. Helen’s Breakfast Club every morning before school.
The club subsidises the cost for children on pupil premium funding and offers knitting, construction and bracelet-making classes.
Kate Prince, Kellogg’s corporate social responsibility manager for the UK and Ireland, said: “Breakfast clubs like St. Helen’s play a vital role in society.
“Thanks to the staff’s dedication, they support working parents, feed hungry children and offer opportunities to increase informal learning with activities and socialisation.”
