Healthy Eating at CCBS

Last week saw the launch of a new healthy eating initiative in the school. On Thursday, LCA sutdents gave a presentation on the importance of choosing healthy snacks at break-time. On Friday, a new menu was launched along with a video about the importance of healthy eating for sports people. The entire school gathered in the Assembly area where Eva McGloin-Falter and Stefan Kolev entertained everyone with some terrific music.
Head Boy Conal Sweeny and Head Girl Mary Flora Scott then spoke to everyone about the benefits of healthy eating for our students, and especially for our aspiring sports stars. A short video of our own students talking about their diets was premiered. This was produced by the student council. Mr. Doherty introduced our national and international sports stars to the assembly. These remarkable young people were called upon to launch the new menu to rapturous applause. A big thank you to Caroline and Teresa who put so much work into this initiative and to our sport stars, musicians, student council, PE, Music and HE Departments and the Head Boy and Head Girl who lent their support to launching this fantastic initiative in our school.
