and beyond for hungry tamariki
Manaia View School is part of Fonterra’s Milk for Schools, Fruit in Schools and KidsCan food programs, and also has a breakfast club to ensure students are able to learn with full bellies.
Principal Leanne Otene told Breakfast families are “most definitely” doing it tough, adding that "most schools across New Zealand will have children and whānau who are struggling at this time".
"It’s about responding to that need and ensuring that we’re doing everything we possibly can so that our tamariki have what they need to be able to learn.”
