On Thursday 5th May Yr 7 had a PSHE day based on the theme of healthy living.
Their day began with a guest speaker from Apples to Zinc who spoke to them on nutrition, eating less sugar and more fruit and vegetables. This was followed with a session on drugs and alcohol where some myths were dispelled and then they did some sessions on Healthy eating in cooking where they made delicious low calorie banana muffins!
They also had sessions on personal survival in the pool and the Healthy body and the right way to develop strength, toning and muscles.
