More than 100 students at Wagga High School have been trying out the new breakfast club, to ensure they are fed, fueled and ready to learn. 

Learning support officer Janelle Lamotte said students run off the bus each morning, excited to kick off their day with a much-needed breakfast. 

“We have a lot of students living out of Wagga who need to travel long distances on buses so it’s nice to have something small for them,” she said. 

“It’s not just about the food it’s also a social time for students of all ages to bond – it almost creates a mentoring role.” 

Students are expected to cook and clean up for themselves after the breakfast each Friday morning.
