Tip Top encourages kids to come together at lunch

Tip Top and anti-bullying program, You Can Sit With Me, have teamed up to drive social inclusion in primary schools.

Last Friday (2 June), school students across the country came together to break bread in the playground in celebration of You Can Sit With Me Day, an annual reminder for students and schools to promote inclusivity and create positive change with five simple words, “you can sit with me”. Tip Top featured as a major sponsor of the event.

Tip Top Marketing & Innovation Director Brett Grebert says providing young Australians with anti-bullying education has the ability to change lives.

“Tip Top sandwiches have been a staple of school lunches for generations and sitting down together over lunch provides an important opportunity for students to connect and make friends,” he says.

“We’re proud to be partnering with You Can Sit With Me to support the important work they’re doing to foster more connected, kind and inclusive playgrounds across the country.”

You Can Sit With Me founder Sophie Sparks says the organisation was developed in response to loneliness and isolation witnessed on the school playground.

“Having no one to sit with at school can be a very isolating experience for students,” she says.

“However, we also know that schools are full of kind, empathetic children who are happy to welcome other students to sit with them, and the bright yellow wristbands help make this clear for students in need of a friend.

“You Can Sit With Me is delighted to be partnering with Tip Top to help better the lives of Australian school students, encouraging children to come together at lunch, share sandwiches and forge friendships.”

Tip Top will also be a major sponsor of the You Can Sit With Me Big Picnic taking place later this year in November.
