Healthy Eating Week. 

Our staff and pupils took part in Healthy Eating Week from 11th – 15th June 2018. Challenges were given to everyone involved with the aim to improve pupil and staff knowledge and encourage healthy eating. Each day we had a different challenge.

  • Monday – Eat a healthy breakfast
  • Tuesday – Eat at least 5 portions of fruit and vegetables
  • Wednesday – Drink plenty
  • Thursday – Get active for at least 60 minutes
  • Friday – Make a pledge to change your health for the better.

Staff made pledges not to use the lifts for the day an take the stairs instead. Pupils had healthy side dishes provided at lunch, took part in a healthy eating assembly and entered competitions to win a signed Mary Berry cookery book and design a new healthy meal for the canteen to make at lunchtime.

Winners were:

  • 7B for consuming the most fruit and vegetables and the best healthy eating pledges
  • 7L for having the most healthy breakfasts
  • 8B for being the most active form
  • 8E for consuming the most healthy drinks
  • Lucy Muirhead 7V for doing the most pupil fitbit steps
  • Hollie Taylor won the signed Mary Berry cookbook for getting the most correct answers on the whole school healthy eating quiz
  • Isabelle Murney 8E designed a meal of fish pie which won the school competition and will now be made in the canteen as a healthy lunch.
  • Miss Roberts for drinking the most water and doing the most staff fitbit steps
  • Mr Perry had the best healthy eating pledge
  • Mrs Verheul had the most healthy staff breakfast
  • Miss Morris done the most staff exercise

The participation from staff and pupils was wonderful to see and will go a long way to helping improve the health of our school community and help us to be the best possible version of ourselves.
