Free Fruit for All Students From Monday
Students will be offered a free piece of fruit every morning between 7.30am and 8.05am in the canteen, starting on Monday 16 May.
"It's part of our responsibility to encourage healthy eating and make sure students understand the importance of a healthy diet," said Principal Chris Everitt.
"This is a pilot scheme but if it's successful we'll be looking to run it on a permanent basis."
Fruit will be available in a first come first served basis.
Five reasons to eat fruit
- Fruit is a good source of vitamins and minerals, including folate, vitamin C and potassium.
- They're an excellent source of dietary fibre. A diet high in fibre can also reduce your risk of bowel cancer.
- They can help to reduce your risk of heart disease, stroke and some cancers.
- Fruit contributes to a healthy, balanced diet.
- It tastes delicious!
Now our students can get all these benefits for free.
