Glenavon ECE’s combined Children’s and Healthy Heart Day was a wonderful red-themed fun day, celebrated with watermelon cake, games, face painting, tricky challenges, healthy kai and good company. Children and their families’ activities which highlighted links between active lifestyles and good nutritional choices, with healthy bodies, hearts and minds.
With the opening of our neighbouring school’s bike track postponed due to rain, a smaller concreted area within the school grounds was used to ride bikes. Later a friendship fruit salad game was played where teams had to perform an exercise to retrieve fruit from stations for a shared fruit salad. Adults pitted their balancing skill and speed against each other in the plum and spoon race, and later took on a tricky sorting task to categorise healthy and not-so-healthy food options – not as easy as you’d think!
