5th/6th Class students enjoying some fruit and vegetables!
St. Mary’s PS promotes a healthy eating policy all year round; but we dedicate one particular week each year reinforcing the benefits of leading a healthy, balanced lifestyle. Our aim is to lay the foundations for healthy living in all its aspects; physical, social and emotional. Healthy Eating Week took place from Monday, 22nd of January to Friday, 26th of January and the children took part in many activities which demonstrated the benefits of choosing the healthy option.
We enjoyed tasting different foods, cookery demonstrations, talks and games. The junior classes also paid a visit to The Country Store, our local greengrocer.
We had colouring competitions, poetry writing, menu creations, jingles, procedural writing and much more throughout the week. The week culminated in a quiz for the senior classes. The high scoring was testament to just how much the children learned during the week. Mini hampers of fruit were presented to the prize winners of the various competitions.
