St Joseph’s N.S. is taking part in the process to establish the school as a Health Promoting School (HPS). A Health Promoting School is a school which promotes the good health of the whole school community. As part of our action planning, a committee comprising of pupils, teachers and parents has been established and one of the focus areas which will be targeted for improvement is the area of healthy eating. Healthy eating is also linked to many other key areas of health such as physical activity, mental health and oral health. It is the intention to ‘refresh’ the school community as to what is healthy eating, to update the Healthy Eating Policy and to hold Healthy Eating Week from the 8th-12th of April.
