|Old Scholar Maureen McCoy is welcomed to the Prep by Mrs Dickson. In July Maureen, a local swimming coach, swam the English Channel from Dover to Calais. She spoke to Prep pupils about her experience during Fitness Week|
Pupils had to research the players, the sport and the Commonwealth Games to prepare for this session.
Alex and David shared memories of their Commonwealth Games experiences and pupils were delighted to, try on shirts and jackets that were worn at the Opening Ceremony. During the week, all pupils took part in badminton coaching sessions and watched demonstration match between Scott and Alex. Talks were also given by representatives of Action Cancer regarding healthy living and Headways on cycling safety.
Each class also planted different fruit and vegetables — researching information on their use and how best to grow them.
Pupils will now have to tend to their crop and look forward to sampling the produce.
It is hoped that many items may be used by the Foundation Stage pupils when making their healthy break time snacks in school.
