Newsletter article for Healthy school
A big hello from the Healthy School Team.
We wanted to keep you informed about what has been happening..
We are pleased to announce that our school has been awarded a GOLD AWARD in the last number of weeks for making an improvement in the choice of food we eat and knowing what we need in order to maintain a healthy and balanced diet. This is a great achievement for the school and children alike.
Over the course of the year we have been looking to maintain this award and also achieve another. To do so we must start with a new project. We have decided to focus on ‘Oral Health’.
This is an area that the school is dedicated to making an improvement in. We will be focusing on teaching children the benefits of oral health and looking after their teeth. We hope you will support us with this issue by supporting your children and encouraging them to brush their teeth on a regular basis. From the recent questionnaire we carried out, it was noted that a large percentage of children have not been registered with a dentist or go for regular check-ups. Please see our April newsletter for a list of local dentists what will be more than happy to help you out.
Watch this space for lots more exciting news!
Mr Downes and Miss Ryan.
