Healthy lessons for juniors


Share post:

Students of St Margaret’s Primary School in St John are closer to adopting healthier eating habits and lifestyles, thanks to the information they received during the school’s annual Healthy Lifestyle Week that started at the school last Monday.
   Principal Hetty McClean said: “Teaching health is important because young people are suffering from similar non-communicable diseases as adults and we thought it would be important to inculcate good eating habits and the practice of good regular exercise from early to avoid these illnesses.
   “To this end, teachers asked the children to bring to school a healthy snack and water, and we sell fruits when they are in season and make healthy drinks such as mauby
and lemonade.”
   Senator Harry Husbands opened the week of activities and spoke to the students, offering them health and safety tips to use while in the school environment.
    The activities included daily tips on health, a first aid demonstration, a simulation fire drill by fire officers from the Worthing Fire Station’s Fire Prevention Unit and days of exercise and outdoor activities. (LK)
