Frank Salt Real Es­tate spon­sors HEPA Ed­u­ca­tional pro­gramme for school chil­dren

The Malta Independent on Sunday - - EDUCATION -

As part of its on­go­ing ini­tia­tives to sup­port lo­cal phil­an­thropic causes, Frank Salt Real Es­tate spon­sored a group of 45 pri­mary school chil­dren be­tween the ages of 7 to 8 years old, from St Mar­garet Col­lege in Sen­glea, to at­tend an ed­u­ca­tional pro­gramme at Sun­flower Farm.

The five-day pro­gramme by the name of HEPA (Health En­hanc­ing Phys­i­cal Ac­tiv­ity), man­aged in con­junc­tion with Sun­flower Pony Club, taught chil­dren the im­por­tance of health and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity us­ing horses and ponies as a medium. The pro­gramme cov­ered as­pects such as gen­eral horse care, as well as food, nu­tri­tion and phys­i­cal ac­tiv­ity in hu­mans.

“Frank Salt Real Es­tate has al­ways been a pioneer in the field of cor­po­rate so­cial re­spon­si­bil­ity and we are al­ways on the look-out to stay in touch not only with our clients but also with the pub­lic at large, sup­port­ing char­i­ta­ble in­sti­tu­tions and NGOs. On this oc­ca­sion we wanted to give these chil­dren the op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in such a pro­gramme, through fund­ing the school needed, to make it hap­pen. On com­ple­tion of this pro­gram, all the chil­dren were pre­sented with a cer­tifi­cate of at­ten­dance, which clearly put a smile on their faces,” said com­pany di­rec­tor God­frey Swain.
