Breakfast Club Trip to Westminster

Last week, Mr Malooq and Miss Paget took four Breakfast Club children to London to celebrate being chosen as Kellogg's Breakfast Club of the Year for the East Midlands. They were invited to have a tour of the Houses of Parliament, followed by a special reception where they met our MP, Dame Margaret Beckett. They all had an amazing day.

 

Christmas Fun!

Last Friday we had a lovely festive day, when we all wore our Christmas jumpers and had a delicious Christmas lunch, complete with crackers. Thank you to Nora and her team for all their hard work in producing a wonderful lunch for so many children!
