THE FACTS ABOUT HUN­GRY KIDS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - News -

Two-thirds of teach­ers re­port chil­dren went to school hun­gry or with­out hav­ing had break­fast.

On a typ­i­cal day, three stu­dents in ev­ery class will ar­rive at school hun­gry and as a re­sult will lose more than two hours of learn­ing time.

Four out of five teach­ers re­port an in­creased work­load due to hun­gry stu­dents, as the chil­dren find it harder to con­cen­trate, are lethar­gic or demon­strate be­havioural prob­lems.
