Healthy life lessons

Rutherglen Reformer - - Cairns Primary - Jonathan Ged­des

Pupils at Cairns Pri­mary and Nurs­ery en­joyed some healthy liv­ing lately.

The young­sters spent six weeks learn­ing about dif­fer­ent ways to stay fit and look af­ter them­selves.

These in­cluded healthy eat­ing, sports to get in­volved in and var­i­ous other ac­tiv­i­ties to learn.

Par­ents and car­ers went along on the last day to hear about what the chil­dren had learned over the past few weeks.

Nurs­ery team leader Michelle Burns said: “It was a re­ally great suc­cess.

“We were so pleased with the great turnout from par­ents and car­ers on the day, who thor­oughly en­joyed the ex­pe­ri­ence.

“We’d like to say thanks to Lindsay Meighan, health de­vel­op­ment of­fi­cer, and the team for de­liv­er­ing a great pro­gramme.

“Also thanks to McColls for their donations of fruit on the day.”

The school was also vis­ited by the au­thor and chil­dren’s en­ter­tainer Alan Win­draw.

He spoke to the chil­dren, en­cour­aged them to sing songs and even taught them a spot of danc­ing.
