Stafflex supports Kirklees College Foundation Breakfast Club for second year running

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

Stafflex has continued its support for the Kirklees College Foundation Breakfast Club initiative for the second year running.

The Foundation Breakfast Club was launched last year by the Kirklees College Foundation department as they found that a number of students were turning up to the college without having any breakfast. This directly impacted on their learning as they were unable to concentrate in class because they were so hungry.  

Students that are experiencing difficulties can speak with a member of the Foundation Studies team at the college. It is then arranged for them to receive a hot drink and healthy breakfast in the morning’s before classes begin at 9.00 a.m.

Poppy Stahelin, further education recruiter, said: “We’re delighted to support this initiative for the second year running. Providing breakfast for students gives them a positive start to the day improving their learning, attendance and social development.”

Jane Brown, key worker at Kirklees College said: “We are so thankful to Stafflex for supporting this brilliant initiative for the second year.  It has made a tremendous difference to the students who access this initiative.”
