The School Breakfast Club operates each week on Wacky Wednesday and Thirsty Thursday. Based in the school hall, support staff prepare nutritious food on these mornings from 8.15am. Recent health surveys have revealed that approximately 25% of students at Nanango High School do not have breakfast before attending school. Breakfast is essential to maintaining good health. The Nanango Foodbank generously supports the program which is also assisted by the Department of Communities, Disability Services and Seniors.
We welcome involvement from staff, parents and community members. If you are interested in helping out please contact Student Services.
I would like
to warmly recommend the ReachOut.com website: http://au.reachout.com/ which is a youth mental health and
wellbeing service for young people up til the age of 25 years.
your child is more complicated and complex, than it was for ourselves at the
same age and it’s helpful, as a parent, to be aware of the most “up to date”
and “best practice” information around these issues. The approach has a strong emphasis on taking
positive steps to make things better.
The site has 300+ factsheets on every conceivable topic related to issues which
may be concerning your son/daughter.
take a moment to explore this site, as it allows you to be informed about
matters relevant to your son/daughter and the world they live in.
also a good reference point to start discussions.
this information is helpful to everyone (adults included).
and resourcing yourself is a very powerful way of providing the leadership and
care, which allows your child to thrive.
