Sea­mus back to school

Accrington Observer - - MOTORS -


A GROUP of lucky year 5 pupils at St Peter’s and St Paul’s re­ceived a sur­prise visit from Ac­cring­ton Stan­ley’s cap­tain Sea­mus Con­neely.

Con­neely got in­volved with their Move and Learn les­son which was all about diet and nu­tri­tion.

The chil­dren quizzed him on life as a foot­baller as well as his diet and the im­por­tance of ex­er­cise.

Some of the ques­tions that were asked were; how long did the team train for a week? Did he eat fruit and veg­eta­bles? – to which he an­swered he liked bananas but dis­liked broc­coli but ate it be­cause it was good for you! Once all ques­tions were an­swered he posed for pho­tos with the pupils and signed fix­ture lists.

Josh Cooper, Com­mu­nity Sport Of­fi­cer ‘It’s great to have the sup­port of the play­ers and its was great to see the chil­dren ask­ing him ques­tions re­gard­ing the ses­sion con­tent. The chil­dren en­joyed hav­ing Con­neely sur­prise them in their les­son to­day.’

The Kinder +Sport Move and Learn Project is part of Fer­rero’s global Kinder+Sport ini­tia­tive de­signed to en­cour­age an ac­tive life­style in chil­dren across the world, and has al­ready reached 15m chil­dren. Tar­geted at pri­mary school chil­dren aged be­tween nine and ten years old, the pro­gramme com­bines six weeks of prac­ti­cal sport­ing ses­sions with class­room based ac­tiv­i­ties.

Dur­ing each 90-minute ses­sion, chil­dren will learn about the body, diet, nu­tri­tion, the im­por­tance of ex­er­cise and food groups and take part in a prac­ti­cal ses­sion of foot­ball, hand­ball and dodge­ball.
