Proudly supported by IGA and the Good Guys Australia.

Make a Difference WA Foundation has recently partnered with IGA Australia to introduce a new innovative program for schools in need that will see children fed breakfast, given a warm jacket in the cold winter months where required and have their social/emotional well-being looked after through The Seedlings Program which is a set of workshops conducted by Di Wilcox that will build resilience and confidence in children. The idea of this new program is to ensure that the whole child is given every opportunity to flourish and be the best version that they can be by starting the day right with a healthy breakfast and fun workshops

The Seedlings Program will also teach children simple and effective strategies to deal with anxiety, friendships, sadness, anger and bullying, along with a brand new workshop about the importance of healthy eating.

Gabriel Pereira, owner of IGA Vale, said IGA is proud to work with Make a Difference WA and support our local community with a grassroots program to educate our next generation.

“Breakfast is an important meal. We want children to be well-informed from a young age on the importance of eating healthy as part of the IGA Breakfast program so they are empowered to make good decisions for their own health.

The Good Guys Clarkson will also be donating electrical appliances to the schools so they have the necessary equipment to run the breakfast program. “Doing good and making a difference in the local community is an integral part of what it means to be a Good Guy,” Denley Sampson Proprietor of The Good Guys Clarkson said.

The launch of this program was conducted at St Helena’s Catholic Primary School in Ellenbrook with over 60 pupils along with representatives from IGA and the foundation attending the breakfast.
