Bishop Alexander Carter Catholic Secondary School Breakfast Club Feels Like Family

Grade 11 student Connor Hill and Principal Dave Soehner are all smiles as they get ready to partake in their breakfast feast.

December 4, 2009 - On December 4, 2009 parents and community members were invited to join the staff and students to celebrate the success of their school's breakfast club. It has been up and running since May of last year and has grown in leaps and bounds. Dave Soehner, principal of the school says a lot of the program's success is because of the staff involvement, most especially Dennis Dechaine, Cathy Boyer and Jen Geddes. All during the breakfast preparation, the serving of the food and the clean up afterwards, these three kid, joke and smile with the students that attend. It is more of a family environment that exists at their breakfast club. "The students from day one were told - wash your hands, sign in, eat your breakfast, and put your plates in the dishwasher" says Mr. Dechaine. And the students do just that - very reminiscent of a family setting around the table. Many of the students volunteer to clean up afterwords as well. Geddes says that they are very grateful to the Breakfast Clubs of Canada as well as the Human League for all of their financial support and donations. Other local companies have also started to donate to this program. Mr. Soehner says that the breakfast club has improved their school culture. "It has provided our students with a greater sense of community and this message is reinforced by the commitment of our teachers who facilitate the program." Cathy Boyer feels it is a great way for the kids to have some social time before class. "It really provides the students with many opportunities including a chance for them to spend quality time with their teachers as well as their friends."
