Resources KickStart Breakfast
Letter to Parents
This letter gives your caregivers and parents an understanding of the programme and how they can help and get involved as a ‘Local Hero’ in your KickStart Breakfast Club.
The role of the volunteer is very important to the logistics of setting up the breakfast club each morning. More importantly though, it is about sharing their stories with the new generation of learners.
Please print this letter off and insert into your school newsletter. As they say – “More hands makes light work!”
Be a Student Volunteer
The student volunteer template is seeking students with exceptional and outstanding drive to lead and support your KickStart Breakfast Club. The KickStart Breakfast student volunteers are our leaders of tomorrow, an unselfish lot who put their peers first and lead by example.
This role is so important to us that we award a $3,000 scholarship to an outstanding Student Champion through the KickStart Breakfast Awards every year!
The location posters in English and Te Reo Māori can be used to indicate to students, teachers and parents what days, time and where your breakfast club takes place. These posters are also a visual encouragement to interest new students and/or parents to get involved in your KickStart Breakfast Club throughout the year.
KickStart Breakfast Manual
This manual gives you all the information you need to run your breakfast club. It contains helpful tips, a checklist, our terms and conditions and so much more. No matter if you are new to running a breakfast club or have been part of the programme for a while, you will find answers to most of your questions in this guide.
Recycling is an important part of the KickStart Breakfast programme. To help you with this aspect of the programme, we have developed a Recycling Guide (both in English and Te Reo Māori) to ensure your empty milk packs are recycled and don’t end up in landfill.
