Students at LSA have just experienced a truly amazing WH♥W Week (World Health & Well-being Week) Full participation from students and staff ensured it was a week to remember. The focus of the week was the Olympic Games.
Each day began with an excellent buffet, courtesy of our catering staff, who offered taster breakfasts which represented Australia, China, South Korea, America, Spain, Greece and of course the UK, for free!
Every subject area made its own contribution to the week whether it be making and testing energy drinks in Science lessons, writing public speeches and debating in English, studying Walter Tulll in History and making a logo, medal and sportswear in technology to name but a few.
There were a large variety of physical activities including tag-rugby, football and YMCA multi games.
External agencies turned out to support the theme of World Health and Well being like the Young People's Services, the Butterfly Project, Fylde Coast Women's Aid and the Library Service who all were busy engaging students through competitions and information.
Staff joined the week in their own right with the 'Race at our Place' raising money for Cancer Research, playing competitive rounders, and participating in a 'Cook Off' making sticky toffee puddings with custard, under the watchful eye of our Food Technology teachers. The food, when created, was promptly consumed.
The week was brought to a close with a wonderful outdoor parade,watched by the whole school, when teams from each of oursevencolleges represented different countries and a chosen value of courage, determination, inspiration, respect, equality, excellence and friendship. The winning college was Whittle who were the overall winners for endeavour and their theme of respect.
Sara Cardno, Assistant Head, said " WH♥W Week has become a popular event in the calendar and has been really successful over the last two years where this underpinning theme has been enhanced by the Olympics and the European Football championships. It has offered diverse experiences to staff and students alike raising important issues and much enjoyment. We now look forward to our Flexible Learning Day on the last day of term which focuses on 'Celebration'.
