We will be celebrating Healthy Living Week from Monday 13 to Friday 17 June. This is an exciting opportunity for us to work together to celebrate and enhance your son’s knowledge of food groups and a healthy lifestyle. The focus will be on ‘Healthy Living’ and not just ‘Healthy Eating’. We will of course be focusing on ‘Mental Health’ too. The big message for the Week this year is, Eat well for you and the planet! 

Each day of the week will have a different theme. Please click here for further information on the British Nutrition Foundation website.


In addition to the above, we would also like the boys to ensure that they have a healthy breakfast, are active every day and are willing to try something new.

Pre-Prep and Junior School

With the success of previous years we have also decided to concentrate on the colours of the rainbow to represent different foods.  On each day alongside normal summer uniform, we shall encourage boys to wear one small item of clothing of the colour of the day e.g. shoe lace, tie, sock, shoe, t-shirt. (Should any boys be representing the school during this week, usual school uniform will be needed for that specific occasion)

We also hope that you will try to match your son’s snack to the colour of the day.

 

Whole School Snacks

To further support Healthy Living Week, we would appreciate it if your son’s snack is fresh fruit or vegetables, avoiding all packaged fruit and snacks. We would also love to see some healthy homemade snacks, if you or the boys feel up to a bit of healthy baking at home.  For recipes and other ideas visit

We look forward to having an educational, fun and healthy week! Many thanks for your support with this whole school initiative.
