A breakfast of exercise and healthy food is making youngsters at a primary school full of energy for the day.I wouldn’t have thought the teachers were too keen on pupils ‘full of energy for the day’…
Pupils at Royston Primary School in Penge High Street have a healthy breakfast and workout before lessons begin every Tuesday and Wednesday.Hmmm. Is this the reason we send our children to school?
Around 50 children have been taking part, and the scheme is such a success that the school did a full week of the breakfasts and exercise last week.
Deputy headteacher Rachel Mollett said: “The idea is to teach the children to eat healthily and exercise regularly, and they have been really enjoying it.”And what have they been doing with all this energy, then?
After their workout on Friday, the youngsters joined their teachers and parents for a protest outside the school to show their opposition to Bromley Council’s plans to end lollipop lady crossing patrols.How convenient…
Longrider has another worrying initiative.

I see nothing wrong with school dinners, it's good for the corps d'esprit. Make 'em free for everybody AFAIAC. Packed lunches are for show-offs.
Similarly, I see nothing wrong with the kids all turning up a bit earlier and having breakfast at school. The nursery where I took our kids gave them a couple of slices of toast and a cup of orange juice first thing, which was handy because it saved faff at home.
I'm just not sure why they're doing their exercise after breakfast and not before.
I assume the next step is to 'order' parents NOT to provide breakfast - so the school-knows-best team can be SURE the kids are eating healthily.
And, of course, so they can make certain no trace of the evil legume (Arachis hypogaea) ever enters the premises.
It's not you Julia. It's sinister.
Sorry to go off topic, but here's a new spin on fake crimes.
I'm with Mark W. on this one. It's fairly common for children here in Thailand to eat breakfast at school. Nothing sinister about it, it's just an optional service the school provides for parents with an early start.
Not to say, of course, that our own ideologues won't find a way of corrupting it for their own sinister purposes.
"I see nothing wrong with school dinners, it's good for the corps d'esprit. "
Normally, I'd agree. But this just struck me as a little sinister.
And when are teachers going to concentrate on teaching, and not all this peripheral rubbish?
"..but here's a new spin on fake crimes. "
Oh, yes! I see she's done this before too. And six children!
"Not to say, of course, that our own ideologues won't find a way of corrupting it for their own sinister purposes."
Yup, that's my concern.
