Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

ARK­LOW Fur­ther Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­tre is host­ing a week of ac­tiv­i­ties for all its stu­dents this week as part of Healthy Ire­land Week.

The ini­tia­tive is aimed at in­cor­po­rat­ing health, fit­ness and men­tal health.

Events kicked off on Mon­day with a healthy break­fast morn­ing. A sched­uled trip to Glen­dalough had to be can­celled be­cause of the weather con­di­tions.

On Tues­day the Level 6 VTOS Project Man­age­ment class hosted a fun morn­ing as part of their fi­nal as­sess­ments and in­vited guest speak­ers to talk about gen­eral health. There was also an aer­o­bics class with An­nette Gib­son, TRX class with Con­nor Doyle, a fun quiz and a healthy soup lunch and a taster of smooth­ies.

On Wed­nes­day, some of the Youthreach stu­dents will host a spe­cial St Patrick’s Ir­ish meal and the other stu­dents will be treated to a healthy soup.

An­gela Glynn will be hold­ing Yoga classes for all stu­dents.

On Thurs­day Mark Lacey from Clean Eat­ing Dublin will at­tend the school and through­out the day he will host ex­er­cises classes and pro­vide cook­ing demon­stra­tions on clean eat­ing.

Also, on Thurs­day Ann Walsh will host an ex­pe­ri­en­tial work­shop on Man­ag­ing Anx­i­ety. To fin­ish the week off Mar­guerite O’ Meara will be dis­cussing food choices and eat­ing for a bet­ter you as well as pro­vid­ing healthy snacks.

It is hoped that the stu­dents will all adopt a health­ier ap­proach to their daily lives af­ter the week has con­cluded. Thanks were ex­tended to Hol­land and Bar­rett and Kil­lowen Farms for their do­na­tions.
