SILHILLIANS can celebrate the fact that 98 per cent of schools in the borough have gained Healthy School status.

To gain this status each school has had to prove that they have promoted health and wellbeing, physical activity, and healthy eating to its pupils.

And next Wednesday July 7, Solihull Council will be holding a day of healthy fun between 10am and 3.30pm in Touchwood.

Residents are invited to come down on the day to enjoy the entertainment and learn more about how Solihull’s students are staying healthy.

Performances will include cheerleaders, Yoga Bugs, dance, live music from Solihull Music Service, and Wake and Shake, an exercise routine designed to get children wide awake for the day ahead.

Over lunchtime, Solihull Catering Service will be giving out free food tasters.

Cabinet Member for Children and Young People, Councillor Norman Davies said: ”Congratulations to the schools who have achieved Healthy Schools status. This is a great achievement which all the schools’ teachers and pupils should be proud of. Gaining Healthy School status is not just about teaching healthy living in lessons; it is about encouraging pupils to take healthy lifestyles decisions both in school, and at home.”
