THE Eaglehawk Football-Netball Club has continued to build on its community links this year with a primary school breakfast program.
Each Friday morning members of the Hawks visit the California Gully Primary School to offer students a healthy breakfast to kickstart their day.
The Hawks run their breakfast program in conjunction with the Bendigo Regional YMCA and the Y Foundation.
“It’s a great program for the club to be involved in and there’s always a fantastic response from the school,” Eaglehawk vice-president Andrew Reid said on Friday.
“The school kids come along, sometimes with their family and enjoy the breakfast.”
The Hawks put on a spread of toast, yogurt, fruit and juice for the weekly breakfast.
The club has also taken their breakfast program to the St Liborious, Maiden Gully, Eaglehawk North and Spring Gully primary schools throughout the year.
As part of the program, the Hawks are offering one parent of each child at each of the schools free entry to Canterbury Park on Saturday for the Hawks’ crucial Bendigo Football League game against Golden Square.
“It’s really important as a footy-netball club to be giving something back to the community,” Reid said.
Meanwhile, while development works have started on the grandstand at Canterbury Park, the famous grandstand is still open for use.
