Socceroo legend serves up breaky
Students of Campbellfield Public School in Sydney’s south west were treated to a soccer superstar serving them breakfast earlier this month.
Tim Cahill, Weet-Bix Ambassador, attended the breakfast club on a chilly morning before the school bell rang, to help serve Weet-Bix, toast, delicious fresh fruit and hot drinks to 180 local students attending Foodbank NSW & ACT’s School Breakfast 4 Health Program.
Breakfast club has never been so busy or chaotic with children lining up, hoping to be served by the ex-Socceroo striker himself. With breakfast eaten and tummies full ready to start the day, Tim led the assembly with ball juggling and words of inspiration, ‘Make your dreams big and bright, there’s no limit to what you can achieve!’.
