Droitwich students spend week learning about healthy lifestyles with activities in the town and Wales

PUPILS at a Droitwich school spent a week learning about healthy lifestyles by scaling Snowdon and taking part in different activities.

Westacre Middle School organised the week to coincide with the school’s annual residential trip to the Drapers’ Field Centre in Betws-y-Coed, North Wales, with events both in Wales and back in Droitwich for the children.

Half of the Year Seven group travelled to Wales where they had the opportunity to scale cliffs, scramble gorges and walk to the summit of Snowdon.

The 60 youngsters visited Snowdonia National Park to scale the tallest mountain in England and Wales.

The children took part in a variety of activities including orienteering and laughter yoga as well as visits to the Droitwich Spa Leisure Centre where they were able to participate in sports such as badminton, dance and squash.

They also visited the Morrisons in Droitwich to learn about the nutritional values of different foods and even had the chance to taste a variety of exotic fruits and sample smoothies when they got back to school.

Deputy Headteacher at Westacre Paul Barber said: “We would like to pass on our gratitude to the staff at Rivers Fitness, Morrisons and Drapers’ Field for helping give our children an unforgettable week.”
