On Wednesday 7 February our school had the privilege of hosting a Nutrition Conference featuring two incredible guest speakers - GB hockey player and Mental Health & Sports Ambassador Amy Costello and Thomas Franks Ltd. Director of Nutrition Christine Bailey.

Amy and Christine led engaging assemblies for both Upper and Lower School students, using activities and examples to teach the essentials of a balanced diet. Students learned about the ‘eat well plate’, match day nutrition for athletes, and eating strategies to help excel during exam times. The highlight for many students was seeing smoothies blended up on the smoothie bike!

In addition to the useful nutrition advice, Amy also shared her inspiring personal journey about why nutrition plays such a pivotal role in her life as an athlete. Her story about being mindful and looking after overall wellbeing really resonated with our pupils, sparking many conversations about this important topic afterwards.

It was brilliant to see the enthusiasm and eagerness of our students throughout the conference. They gained many valuable insights to apply both on and off the pitch.
