Change for Life Festival

20th March 2017

A fantastic time was had by all at the Change for Life Festival held at Marjons. Twelve children took part in a range of activities including mindfulness and yoga, orienteering, an inflatable assault course and dance and movement. We were also very fortunate to meet Cassie Patten who won a bronze medal for Great Britain in the 2008 Bejiing Olympics for long distance swimming. We were given the opportunity to ask her questions, get her signature, have a photo and hold her medal! Leni and Aoife attended a young mentors course at the same time so they are able to bring back to school and share what they have learnt with their friends. We all learnt that a really good way to stay healthy is to do lots of activities and these do not have to be boring and hard work but can be immense fun and very enjoyable.
