Stogursey school gets £750 for breakfast club
PUPILS at Stogursey Primary School are starting the day with a spring in their step – thanks to a regime of rigorous exercise and healthy food.
EDF Energy has donated £750 through its Hinkley Point C Neighbourhood Fund to a healthy breakfast club run by parents.
The club, which starts an hour before classes begin, sees pupils take part in a rigorous 20-minute exercise routine, delivered by a specialist instructor.
They then enjoy a breakfast which is often supplemented with smoothies and porridge provided by parents. Cara Lynch Blosse, head teacher, said: “The best learning naturally occurs when the body is well prepared. Receiving this grant from EDF Energy is great news and will ensure the club continues to run at a time when funding is often so hard to source.”
Charlie Sanders, communications officer for EDF Energy at Hinkley Point C, said: “Starting the day in such a healthy way should be inspiration to us all. Our neighbourhood fund exists to help local projects like this and we’re really pleased to support such a positive scheme.”
