"The social impact of this program has been outstanding. It has lead to a marked improvement in school attendance. Chronic late arrivals are now here before school and many behaviours we experienced because children were coming to school hungry have disappeared."
Daystar Foundation's Before, Lunchtime, After School Transformation (BLAST) Programs currently run in 15 schools in South West Sydney. We continue to strive to meet the demand from other schools which have a need for our in-school programs. Daystar's BLAST Programs are Breakfast Club, Literacy Buddies, Garden Club, Music Club, Homework Club and Basic Needs Drives.
Below are references from some of the schools Daystar works with describing the impact Daystar's BLAST Programs have on students:
