WELLINGTON NEWS Generous donations to Wellington Defibrillator installed in Public School’s Breakfast Club Wellington Contributed by LEEANNE LEE, WELLINGTON PUBLIC SCHOOL
GENEROUS donations from two local organisations have provided 40 weeks of funding for the Wellington Public School Breakfast program. The Wellington Antique Motor Club and the Wellington Quota Club have been extraordinarily generous and have recognised the work done in our school community by the Breakfast Club program. “Our Breakfast Club is about more than just food. We provide a place for children to
have a positive start to the day. Every child in the school is welcome at Breakfast Club. “We encourage children to eat at the tables, chat with the other people at the table and help with the making of breakfast. “Children who have difficulty separating from their family in the morning, children who have left home early to catch buses or walk to school, and children who feel lonely in the playground are all using Breakfast Club as a happy way to start the day,” said Leeanne Lee, one of the co-ordinators of the Breakfast Club. The Quota Club at-
tended Breakfast Club to present their donation which was a great experience for the ladies and the students. The ladies were able to meet with the students and went on a tour of the old principal’s residence which is now used for the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen/Garden program, school counselling services and all Learning and Support staff. Wellington Public School would like to thank both organisations and all the other local businesses and individuals who support the Breakfast Club program through their regular donations of goods and money.

after a cardiac arrest – one of those installed in Dubbo has already saved a life. It is very easy to use, you just listen to the instructions and it will not deliver a shock if it is not needed. Several Lions were at the installation which is on the veranda wall of the Caves Complex Caravan Park Caretaker’s Cottage – where all people can get to it at all hours. They then listened to its instructions and had a relaxing cuppa afterwards hoping it is never needed.
