The BNF’s Healthy Easting Week also included a full programme of activities which the school took part in.
This included the Best Start breakfast, smoothie making, Mindfulness and Yoga sessions and a mass flashmob-style aerobics class, getting the whole school stepping out and limbering up.
The Senior School also hosted an enlightening ‘Sleep Sense’ session for teenagers, promoting the positives of a good night’s sleep whilst also looking into the negatives of not getting enough and tackling some common sleep disorders.
Rebecca Barlow, School Counsellor and Wellbeing Co-ordinator at Thorpe Hall School was the driving force behind the week’s programme: “As the BNF survey results confirmed, it’s vital for us to look at sleep as part of a healthy lifestyle, especially as it seems to affect what we eat. This week has been a huge success and we’ve focused on a range of tools we can all access to help stay physically and mentally healthy - such important life lessons for young people.”
