THEY say a good hearty breakfast is the best way to start the day.
Students at Governor Philip King Public School will soon be able to qualify the belief when the school's new breakfast club kicks-off.
The school, which has 703 students, will provide youngsters with different types of cereal, fruit, juice and toast to kick-start their day.
School counsellor Karen Parmenter said many students came from low socio-economic status families or had parents who worked long hours, so they missed out on eating breakfast.
"Educational research confirms the profound and growing effects of social and economic inequality on the educational outcomes of students," she said.
"Missing breakfast can inhibit a child's physical, mental and emotional development."
The breakfast club will take place each morning in a classroom at the school, offering each student a chance to eat healthily.
The program aims to increase physical wellbeing and improve learning as well as reduce social isolation of students.
Ms Parmenter said the school had received financial donations from Sydney Lions Baseball Club, King Tomislav Croatian Club, Starr Partners Real Estate Fairfield, Club Marconi, Coles and Woolworths while Kellogg's donated the cereal.
