This year we have kicked off Healthy Lifestyles Week in style. We had Captain of the Belfast Giants Adam Keefe come and visit. The children really enjoyed meeting a local (Canadian) celebrity and really took on board his message of eating well, exercising and getting lots of sleep. So expect to see squats, burpees and push-ups!
He even stayed and joined us for our daily mile. What a star!
Thank you Adam for giving up your time to come visit us.
