It’s health week at KGS!

Kirkwall Grammar School.

Pupils at Kirkwall Grammar School are to go on a health kick, as they take part in the school’s annual health week.

The main focus is on mental health but across the week the pupils will take part in a host of activities looking at a range of health factors including healthy eating, smoking and exercise.

The week will culminate in a health fayre for the whole school where a number of organisations will be on hand to speak to pupils about their organisation or service.

Other whole school events will include a staff health walk and a Staff v Pupils Basketball game competition.

The week has been organised by PE teacher Diane Currie, alongside KGS staff and the OIC’s Active Schools team.

Cheryl Rafferty, an Active Schools co-ordinator with the council, said: “Health and well-being is important at any age, but even more so when our young peoples’ minds and bodies are developing.

“Health and well-being week will introduce the pupils to a range of topics and provide a platform for them to discuss some of the health issues that affect them the most.”
