On the second day of Wellbeing Week, we focused on physical health. Our 2nd year students explored the benefits of eating certain foods. They were given advice by Ms Dodd on how to maintain a balanced diet as well as planning their own healthy meals. Students sampled a variety of snacks that were highly nutritious. Our 1st and Transition year students paired up as buddies for the Walk a Mile with a Smile challenge. Mr Turbitt organised a route for students to take in the local area. 1st years and TYs really enjoyed learning more about one another along the way. Ms Flynn gave a Dancercise class at lunchtime. Students were given a full body workout to the beat of popular dance tunes. These initiatives were organised to promote exercise as something than can be enjoyable and fun. Well done to all who took part.
