Last week The Bridge Community Hub hosted a Healthy Lifestyles Roadshow. This was an opportunity for all 20 schools in our local area to come together at one event and share expertise around different aspects of a healthy living.
Our very own hospitality and catering instructor, Stephen Wilson, delivered the popular 'Healthy Diet' session, which helped parents and pupils appreciate the amount of sugar and fat in our food.There were also talks from the Fire Service, the Police, a session on Mental Health and a gang awareness talk.
In addition there was a market place with stall holders from agencies across Kirklees including Kirklees Active Leisure, School Nursing and PCAN, which is an agency supporting parents of children with special educational needs.
For the children, there were sporting activities including archery and skateboarding and Huddersfield Town's Terrier made a celebratory appearance to support their 'beat the goalie' activity! And of course some healthy fruit snacks.
It was great to welcome over 80 families and have all our schools together at one event. Thank you to Kirkburton Middle school for hosting us. We look forward to future community events!
If anyone missed the Roadshow but would like further information from any of the talks or stalls then please contact your Pastoral Leader who will be able to forward leaflets and phone numbers from each agency for your support.
