Our Health Promoting School
We were officially recognised as a Health Promoting School in June 2007. The main aim of a Health Promoting School is to promote the health of everyone, in the school community. In 2007/08 we had the ‘Food Dudes’ programme in our school. This helped to encourage children to eat more fruit and vegetables in school and at home. During the school year 2011/12 we again had the ‘Food Dudes’ Programme to target children from infants to 2nd Class. Each year we do the skipathon. In 2010/11 we introduced a ‘Buddy System’ to encourage playground games and friendships. During 2011/12 we had a Dental Hygienist visited and spoke to children in all classes and parents on caring for their teeth.
