A Health & Wellbeing Festival was held at Newsome High school last week for 54 Year 7 and 8 students. It was organised by the school’s HEALTHY LIFESTYLE CHAMPIONS as part of the Youth Sport Trust programme. These students did a fantastic job leading some of the activities and inspiring their peers.
Activities included cycling, climbing, skateboarding, mad games (human hungry hippos), mindfulness and a workshop on the effects of sugary drinks. This will now be followed up by a 10 week club in the summer term whereby participants can continue to make small steps to improve their lifestyle.
Let’s get as many young people educated on the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle! #HLC #YST
