Healthier and happier

Moor Park School near Ludlow runs an annual Better Together event and this year the theme was around ‘health and happiness’. The day saw all age groups working together in a variety of activities which fitted the theme; from yoga to skipping, gardening to cooking, there were over 20 activities for children to get involved in to know pupils from across the school. Poetry masterclasses moved seamlessly to a disabled awareness workshop; recycled bottles were turned into a greenhouse; and courgettes grown by the children in the school allotments were turned into burgers.

The day coincided with the launch of new catering facilities, and catering staff taught children how to make pizza while educating on nutrition. Money raised by pupils wearing non uniform went towards the Harry Johnson Trust, which supports Shropshire children with cancer.
