School breakfast success for disadvantaged schools in NSW

Date posted: 25 March 2014

A school breakfast program in New South Wales is seeing positive results after being implemented in fifteen of the states most disadvantaged schools.

The state government program, although targeted at Indigenous students, is available to all pupils attending the school.

Adrian Piccoli, Education Minister for NSW, noted the effect the program was having on the children, praising the increased levels of concentration, better learning ability and improved behaviour.

Karen Clark, Principal of Taree Primary School, says the program is paying off in the classroom. 'The children are very settled...they're settled and they're learning.'
