Healthy lifestyles are Important to us at Stone Soup Academy and we try very hard, given our limited outdoor space to encourage healthy living for our students and staff but every now and again I think that these ideas need a little nudge to get things going again. That is why this month and moving forward that we are introducing ‘Fit Fridays’ on 6 dates across this academic year for all students and staff in Years 9, 10 and 11.
Every Friday currently we operate enrichment sessions for students. These include a range of activities outside of the curriculum for students to experience. These include football, ice-skating, enterprise etc. The only change on ‘Fit Fridays’ will be that on the following dates student afternoon attendance will be optional. Students can stay and join in with staff or they can choose to go home at 12.20. Lunch will still be available at 12.20 for any student who wishes to eat lunch regardless of whether they stay or go in the afternoon.
We are hoping that given the opportunities available to participate with all the staff that most of our young people will choose to stay and enjoy an afternoon of activities and sport but the choice will be theirs. We hope that these will be lovely relationship building afternoons but any students failing to participate will be asked to leave the academy. These dates will enable all our staff to participate and we might even be able to organise staff and student football matches, rounders and other team activities with everyone involved as the weather improves.
The dates are:-
29th November 2019
31st January 2020
28th February 2020
27th March 2020
24th April 2020
26th June 2020
The other change on these ‘Fit Fridays’ will be a change to the menu at the Academy which will focus on healthy eating with no crisps offered at break or lunch.
I would be grateful if you would make a note of the dates and thank you for your continued support.
