Crunch and Sip
Cooloongup Primary is a registered Crunch & Sip school. Crunch and Sip is a set break to eat fruit or salad vegetables and drink water in the classroom. Students re-fuel with fruit or vegetables during the morning or afternoon, assisting physical and mental performance and concentration in the classroom.
Each day students bring fruit or salad vegetables to school to eat in the classroom at a set time. Each child has a small clear bottle of water in the classroom to drink throughout the day to prevent dehydration.
Through Crunch&Sip, schools demonstrate their commitment to nutrition education in the classroom, by making links with the curriculum and creating a supportive school environment.
With the support of the Red Cross, Food Bank and the Rotary Club of Rockingham we run a breakfast club every morning from 7:45 a.m. – 8:20 a.m. in the Community Room. Everyone is welcome to attend even if they have had breakfast; we try to start the day in a quiet, social setting at the same time as giving those children that want it; a healthy start to the day.
