CHILDREN at St Andrew’s Primary School in Bearsden have been learning some valuable lessons about how to live a healthy life recently.

Pupils had a fun packed week of health related activities including orienteering, keep fit, indoor curling, ball skills, basketball, a motivational magic show, hockey, skipping, safety in the sun, healthy eating, hand washing, a walking challenge, tennis and table tennis.

Clare Rajan, from Scotmid, visited the school with her ‘smoothie bike’ and P4 to P7 pupils all had a go on it to generate enough energy to power the smoothie maker. Scotmid provided the fruit free of charge and the children tasted the finished product.

Mary Lisk, health co-ordinator at St Andrew’s Primary, said: “Clare has been a great support this year providing P3 pupils with vouchers to set up a healthy tuck shop. The children raised over £400 from it and all profits are being donated to The Red Cross and Be Child Cancer Aware.”

The school would like to thank everyone who helped to deliver such a wide programme of activities during the week including Jordan Gray from Thorn Park Tennis Club, Terry McLernon from Drumchapel Table Tennis Club, parents Mrs Hendry and Mrs Burton and the active schools co-ordinator Patrick Finnon.
