Healthy Kids = Healthy School!

Monday 23 June 2014

Pupils at our Primary School were taken out of their usual routine, and classrooms, yesterday for Health Day activities. In order to make the children more aware about a variety of health issues, the school invited parents who work in health-related professions to come and give talks to the children. Each class went through a rotation of 5 half-hour talks, moving on to a different classroom for each talk.

The talks were given in Hebrew or Arabic, with translation for those who needed, and covered topics like healthy teeth and aerobic and anaerobic exercise. The children were very interested and asked many good questions throughout the day.

"Health Day" is an annual tradition at the WAS-NS primary school and an important part of the school year. It provides an opportunity to bring into focus topics about which the children have been learning throughout the year, helps to strengthen the wider school community by involving parents, and promotes the vision of a healthy school.
