The free breakfast club started at Michaelston College on 18th January, with canteen is now open from 8 until 8.40am and the first 50 pupils from years 7, 8 & 9 (KS3) who arrive to school early, qualify for a free healthy breakfast to the value of £1.40. The canteen has a friendly buzz with background music, pupils sit down with informal learning games and help with homework if required by staff. With assistance from ACE resources teachers say this has made a huge difference to preparing pupils for the day ahead, with a lot more pupils are now arriving at school on time. There is evidence to show that pupils who start the day with a healthy breakfast do better in school.
