Health Week Partnership at St Joseph’s

St Josephs 1 Health Week A1Last week saw the whole school and Pre-5 unit get involved in Health Week here at St. Joseph’s. Fantastic Physical Health activities were delivered, particularly in conjunction with Active Schools.

We were delighted to have Martin Caldwell of Active Schools along with some of his associates delivering exciting new activities: Archery, Mini Kickers, Zumba, Dance, Shinty, Rugby and Tae Kwon Do. In addition, we had our flat race heats in preparation for Sports Day, Netball and Football tournaments and Scottish Country Dancing.

However, the week wasn’t all about physical health and classes also learned about Safety in the Sun (by Oncology Nurses), CPR (by Heartstart), Keeping Animals Safe over the Summer (by the SPCA), Healthy Eating (Fruit Fiesta), Keeping Healthy Teeth (by the Dental Nurses) and First Aid. It was a fantastic week of learning….and we all feel better for it!
