Healthworks at school

Each year Healthworks takes over a Year 6 session at St. Gregory’s junior school to teach the kids about health and fitness related issues. This forms part of their curriculum they must study and helps them to answer questions set by Mr Jones their teacher. We use pieces of our fitness testing equipment, investigate sugar content in foods, use balloons to demonstrate lungs and get the kids outside for some pulse raising activities and explain how the body reacts to exercise. We have been going to St Gregory’s for the last five years and each year the kids become more aware of the need of a healthy lifestyle. let’s hope they carry it forward to their adult lives.
