Sir Edmund Hillary Primary has been given an Outstanding Energy Club Award.

The school is proudly displaying a permanent plaque as a reminder of the award, which recognises heir practice in engaging children in physical activities, recruiting committed leaders to the programme and involving parents and support staff.

Energy Club encourages children aged four to 11 to play and learn about healthy food choices through fun, physical activities. The extra-curricular activities provide a legacy from the Olympic and Paralympic Games by tackling the increasingly sedentary lives of young children.

Headteacher Simon Tollervey said: “We feel honoured that our work to make children more active has been recognised with an Outstanding Energy Club Award.”

“Our dedicated group of leaders provide pupils with more physical activity and nutritional information to ensure they have a brighter future.”

“Pupils become healthier and have a great time in the process - a winning combination.”
