Term 3 Meeting - 8th February 2022
Firstly, we finalised and signed our letter about healthy packed lunches. During this meeting, Mrs Fairs shared that we needed to discuss with each class different ways to make sure that we are all getting the Government recommended 30 active minutes a day at school. We generated a list of possible ideas such as: daily mile, time slots on the fitness equipment, yoga, skipping challenges and active maths games. All the Healthy School representatives were asked to then go back to their classes and ask them for further ideas that would work for their class. They will be in charge or keep a record of how their class is doing.
Term 2 Meeting - Thursday 9th December 2021
Following on from our first meeting, the focus to our meeting was to draft out a letter to our school community regarding 'healthy packed lunches'. As a group, we had a discussion surrounding the contents of our lunchboxes and what we need to include in them so that they are healthy. We looked at a healthy eating plate and discussed the food groups that we should have in our packed lunches. The Healthy School Council felt that some lunchboxes are a bit unhealthy and so they wanted to write to the children's parents reminding them of the importance of a balanced lunch. I then typed the children's ideas into a draft letter to be checked and signed off.
Term 1 Meeting - 14th October 2021
I met with all the newly appointed Healthy School Representatives to talk about their role for the year. I explained that our job is to consider and look after the healthiness of the school. This comprises of us looking into fitness and exercise and healthy eating.
I then asked the committee for aims and ideas for the year ahead and here are a few of their suggestions.
All of the suggestions were well thought out and I will look forward to whittling them down to some focus areas for the school year.
