Poor pupils in secondary school also need breakfast

I AM happy to learn that the Government is giving $1 a day to each child from a poor family for breakfast ('MOE to pick up tab for needy pupils' breakfasts'; ST, Feb 27).

Why not extend this assistance to pupils in secondary school too? Take Chong Boon Secondary School for example. It has poor pupils and one had only tap water for breakfast ('So poor she drank water for breakfast'; The New Paper, Jan 11).

I sometimes don't eat breakfast just to save money.
