Fairstead Primary and Nursery School will run a week long sports event to promote Sport and Healthy Lifestyles for their pupils. The pupils, parents and staff are excited for the up-coming event which is being held from 25th until 29th June.
The Head Teacher, Hazel Spinks is keen to offer a fun, action packed week where the pupils will learn a vast amount about leading healthy lifestyles and introduce a wide range of activities which emphasise the importance of making healthy choices.
Now with the help of Setchey based business Maxview, the week will incorporate many football inspired events. The local manufacturer of TV aerials and satellite systems, have donated 20 footballs to the school so the children can truly get into the World Cup spirit which is sweeping the nation.
Hannah Clark from Maxview said “As a local company when Fairstead Primary and Nursery School spoke to us about the week of events we were so impressed in their drive to get their pupils and parents being healthier and more active we thought of ways how we can help. With the World Cup underway we thought what better way than donating 20 replica World Cup footballs for the children to not only enjoy and use during the week but also for terms to come.”
Amongst other opportunities the sports coordinator, Miss Ellington has organised workshops in cheerleading, archery, fencing and acrobatics.
"The pupils are promised an inspiring week, we’ve enlisted the support of Norse who will be providing an exciting smoothie making experience, cycling proficiency for our KS2 children and workshops on nutrition and well-being across the school. We recognise the many benefits of PE and sport and are dedicated to promoting healthy and active lifestyles".
