Breakfast Club

Breakfast Club

One in five Australian children go to school without having had breakfast, so commencing this Friday the 8th of March PCC will hold a free breakfast club with all year levels welcome. Come down to The Space for a free healthy breakfast proudly sponsored by Semper Dental. Breakfast Club will run every Friday morning 8-8.35am.

We would like to encourage parents and guardians to help donate towards this great program by purchasing breakfast products such as sliced bread, spreads and muesli bars and sending them to school with your children where they can be collected and put towards running our breakfast club.
