Active April
2018-03-26

There are so many benefits of being active and our staff would like to show our students that even with busy schedules and stress from teaching and studying, that you can always find time to be active.

 

During the month of April our staff will be taking part in an inter departmental challenge. The idea is to raise awareness of and demonstrate how being active can have a huge positive impact on your lifestyle. Making you smarter, healthier, less fatigued and even improve your grades. 

Our teachers will be recording how active they are by noting the distance they walk, run, cycle and swim each week. We will even be recording team sports and various fitness classes that some teachers do.   

During flag raising on Monday 7th May we will announce the most active individual and the most active department.
