Sixth Form students and Staff with Ruth West of Cancer Focus NI at their Health Awareness Day
09/01/2020 HEALTH AWARENESS DAY FOR LORETO COLLEGE STUDENTS

All students at Loreto College took part in a Health Awareness day led by Cancer Focus NI on Thursday 9th January.

Students took part in workshops tailored to their age group, with Y8-10 students attending a presentation called Dead Cool, Year 11 students a workshop entitled Think, Eat, Move, Year 12 students a presentation called Save Your Own Skin and Sixth Form students a presentation entitled Be Body Aware.

These presentations will be followed up with a series of lessons in form class for Years 11-14 and in English class for Years 8-10, discussing the issues raised and creating personal health plans.

Mrs Frances Pepin, Pastoral Care Coordinator at Loreto College, paid tribute to Ruth West from Cancer Focus NI who had presented this vital information to the students, in the hope that this would inspire all students at Loreto to begin 2020 in a more informed, health conscious frame of mind.
