South Walsham: Fairhaven Primary School children enjoy big breakfast event
The importance of eating breakfast before coming to schools has been demonstrated to pupils at Fairhaven Primary School in South Walsham.
The children started their morning with the whole school exercising to music for 20 minutes on the playground, led by PE co-ordinator, James Branch.
Among the other staff who joined in was the school's lollypop lady, Ena Mallett, who was celebrating her 79th birthday and will be one of the Olympic Torch Bearers in July.
Once the children had worked up an appetite they all went into the school hall.
Here they were served with a pancake each, along with a selection of yoghurt and fresh fruit. The Farm Shop at Garden Farm, Blofield, donated oranges, lemons, pears and apples to help make the big breakfast event a healthy occasion.
