A MORAY school has had its breakfast club voted as the best in Scotland at the annual Kellogg’s Breakfast Club awards.
As a result of the win, Elgin High School has won a cash prize of £1000 to spend on its breakfast club, as well as a trip to London for the awards ceremony which will take place at the House of Commons.
The panel of judges, which was made up of MPs, picked Elgin High School as winner as the club committed to ensuring that every student has breakfast to start their day.
Josh Davidson, inclusion project coordinator at Elgin High, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have won this prestigious accolade.
“It’s a great honour for our school and we could not be prouder of this amazing achievement.
"The support from local outside agencies has been crucial in developing our club at Elgin High and we couldn’t have achieved this award without them.”
Around 25 pupils attend the breakfast club each day. After breakfast the students can get help with their homework.
Elgin High School will spend its winnings on disposable cutlery and tableware for the ‘food to go’ service that the club provides.
Chris Silcock, vice president and chief of Kellogg’s of UK and Ireland, said: “I have had the opportunity to see the amazing work breakfast clubs do first hand.
"The last two years have proven that breakfast clubs are vital for so many families. They support working parents, offer a sense of normality when it is needed most and provide the essential fuel children need to learn.
“The Kellogg’s Breakfast Club awards provide a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the incredible and vital difference these clubs make across the UK."
