Under our Life Skills Programme we working in partnership with Herts for Learning to support and promote The Herts Healthy Schools Programme across schools in Harpenden and surrounding villages.

Over the past two years we have funded seven schools to join the programme and all have achieved Healthy Schools Status. This year six of the schools have chosen to work towards enhanced status. This involves working towards an identified health and wellbeing priority within the school. Again we are funding these schools.

Encouraging healthy lifestyle choices by young people is an important part of our Life Skills Programme. Furthermore there is sound research evidence that there is a well established correlation between health and wellbeing and pupils’ educational attainment and motivation.

Subsequently Harpenden Lions were delighted to receive a giant folio from the school showing their appreciation, one page from each class, signed by the pupils:

Dave Price and Andrew Godden joined in the half day training for teachers at St Dominic's last week for using Jigsaw materials for PSHE work.

St Dominic's have purchased materials that will be used throughout the school, with classes being able to be taught the same topic at different levels at the same time, allowing the school to focus on the topic at all school assemblies. These topics include drug and alcohol education, cyber and homophobic bullying, body image, self-esteem, health education and financial capability.

Harpenden Lions Club have contributed £500 to the cost of the programme as part of their roll out of giving to junior and infant schools this year.
