KILWINNING Academy will be providing free breakfasts to students on exam days.

Toasted bagels, cereals, tea, coffee and fruit juice will all be available at the Zone every exam day from 8am to 9.30am this year.

Cunninghame South MSYP, Aaran McDonald, was delighted with the plan and said: “The idea of breakfast being provided for pupils on days of their exams is brilliant. 

“We always hear that the brain needs food to work properly but for some people it’s just not possible for them to grab something.

“That’s why I’m so proud to see Kilwinning Academy setting up this fantastic programme.”
