Breakfast Program
The breakfast club happens each morning at SVE and sometimes children forget their lunch so they are given food from the breakfast club.  Monetary donations are appeciated by the club at any time throughout the school year and some students have birthday parties and donate cash to the club instead of receiving gifts. Any donation will be used to buy food for the breakfast club.  Please let us know if you require a receipt for your donation and thank you for your interest in the breakfast club.  Thanks also to the many volunteers who look after the day to day operation of the club.
