A group of year 11 citizenship students have been taking action for the good of their school and local community around the matters of healthy eating. Please see below for messages from the students.

Group 1:

We are a year 11 citizenship group that are doing a project on healthy eating. Healthy food is the guide to a perfect healthy lifestyle. Us students at Holy Trinity plan to change our menu to be more healthy but nice and enjoyable to eat. There are many benefits to eating healthy. For example, eating healthy can: keep skin, teeth and eyes healthy, supports muscles, strengthen bones, may help you live longer and many more benefits.

A well-balanced diet provides all the energy you need to keep active throughout the day and the nutrients you need for growth and repair, helping you to stay strong and healthy and help to prevent diet-related illness, such as some cancers. It also helps students concentrate in class which therefore improves their grades. Keeping active and eating a healthy balanced diet can also help you maintain a healthy weight. Deficiencies in some key nutrients can also weaken parts of your immune system. Down below you will find a trusted website that will further inform you about the benefits of eating healthy. https://www.nhsinform.scot/healthy-living/food-and-nutrition/eating-well/health-benefits-of-eating-well


Group 2:

Dear Parents/Carers


As you may know, we have aimed to change school meals for the better as it has come to our attention that they are not up to scratch. We have considered this and improved school meals in hopes of helping students focus more, more students using the canteen and its facilities and overall enjoying school meals as a whole. As a result this will improve the schools reputation for meals and make the canteen more attractable. We hope this improves the overall wellbeing of our students and if your child has any allergies, please let us know, as we may be able to adjust this to make things more enjoyable.


Yours sincerely,

Students of Holy Trinity
