A school breakfast café for pupils and parents at St Kenneth’s Primary School in Ballingry was hailed as inspirational this week by MSP Alex Rowley who brought along Scottish Labours spokesperson for early years Daniel Johnston MSP to see the work and speak with pupils, teachers and parents.
Mr Rowley was also joined by Fife Council Education chief Cllr Bryan Poole and deputy Council leader Lesley Laird. Speaking afterwards he said; “I believe that some of the work going on at St Kenneth’s is both inspirational and ground breaking and I am keen that we can learn from the best practice in this school. The breakfast café is great in that it brings children and teachers together for some breakfast, sets up the kids for a morning of learning and there is the chance for parents and guardians to drop in.
“Fife Council has been doing a lot of pioneering work in education these last few years that is paying off big dividends in improving attainment and the progress is down to lots of hard work by all the staff. St Kenneth’s is a great example of this”.
