Did someone say bacon?

There were bacon and eggs aplenty last month as a school community came together for a big feed. 

Grovelands Primary School hosted a community big breakfast on June 21 which saw plenty of people with hungry mouths and rumbling stomachs attend the event. 

Principal Mark Bradshaw said the idea behind it was something he had tried at another school before coming to Grovelands Primary. 

“When I began here as principal in 2015 I wanted to welcome our community into the school and let them know we value them and are here to work with them to get the best outcomes for our students,” he said. 

“The first year we had about 80 people turn up and it has grown progressively since then to include numbers around the 200 mark.” 

Mr Bradshaw said the premise was simple. 

It was about giving back and celebrating the community. 

“We want our community to feel welcome here and know that they are important to us at school,” he said. 

“For the students, it is great for them to have their families at the school and to be able to share the good things we do with them.” 

This year’s event was held in conjunction with the school’s wellness day, which encourages positive mental health and wellness.
