That the Parliament welcomes the news that Magic Breakfast clubs have now been launched at Broomhouse and St Joseph’s primary schools, which are supported and funded by Amazon UK; understands that employees will also volunteer in the schools to support the running of activities at the clubs to engage with the children; recognises that Amazon UK will also provide funding for Magic Breakfast clubs at a further three schools across Scotland, and commends all those involved with Magic Breakfast for providing healthy breakfasts so that children can focus and improve their educational attainment, which it understands has been evidenced in independent research by the Education Endowment Foundation.
