S1 pupils at Mintlaw Academy were treated to a Healthy Breakfast on Tuesday, May 26 thanks to the school’s Health and Wellbeing Group.

The special breakfast event was set up by the group, made up of school staff and S6 pupils, after teachers realised that students were losing concentration throughout classes.

Kelly Stephen, a teacher at Mintlaw Academy, said: “As a school we try to promote health awareness and we also noticed that pupils were lagging in classes before lunch.

“We discovered that a lot of the pupils don’t usually have breakfast so we decided to hold this event to really stress how important breakfast is.

“We’ve had some great feedback so far, a lot of the pupils are delighted to try a selection of foods.”

The pupils were asked to help themselves to whatever they wanted from a selection of fruit, cereals, meat, cheese, yoghurt and bread.

The academy would like to thank the following stores for their food donations: Morrisons Peterhead, ASDA Fraserburgh, Tesco Ellon and Fraserburgh, Mintlaw Co-Op, Ewan Morrice, R & A Fraser, Longley and Food For Thought.
