Healthy Living Week


We have enjoyed an exciting and fun-filled week in Prep to celebrate Healthy Living Week! We kicked off with Fitness Freddy on Monday who led us in an energetic aerobics session, just what we needed to get in the Healthy Living mind set! On Tuesday, each class enjoyed a visit from the Dental Nurse, who showed us how we should brush our teeth and the importance of looking after and caring for our teeth. We had the glamorous hairdressers in school on Wednesday to show us how to care for our hair and provided us with great tips on looking after and caring for our hair. 

The Belfast Giants were a great highlight on Wednesday afternoon, and we heard all about the importance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle and especially enjoyed some exercise demonstrations!

We also enjoyed a visit from local charity, Mary’s Meals, who talked to the girls about the importance of sharing our healthy lifestyle with those children who are less fortunate than us around the world. We are hoping to support their Backpack Appeal in order to provide children in Africa some of the daily essentials for leading a healthy lifestyle. Pre-Pre-School to Prep 4 took part in a healthy lifestyle puppet show from Action Cancer on Thursday. Finally, lots of girls came to school early on Friday morning to enjoy a healthy breakfast at school, which was a lovely way to finish our Healthy Living Week. I would like to express my sincere thanks to all the visitors who came to Prep and made this week a great success for all the pupils!
