Schools tackle health and wellbeing

15 Mar 2019 10:49



A NEW competition has been launched to promote the key messages of healthy living and wellbeing to primary school children in Stockport.

Working in partnership with the borough’s Life Leisure organisation, Totally Local Company is inviting pupils from schools they work with to create a short video promoting healthy living and wellbeing.

Children are being asked to work in their classes and share their thoughts and ideas on this subject and create a video with a winning message.

The video can take any form they wish, such as a song/pop video, dance, poem, play or chat show as long as it addresses and promotes healthy living and wellbeing.

A winning entry will be chosen from both key stage one and two. The children from each winning class will receive a free month’s Life Leisure Kids pass and, of course, a month’s pass for their teacher.

The winning videos will be promoted online to demonstrate the children’s talents.

Totally Local Company is the ‘one-stop’ provider of choice for a range of private and public sector organisations across Greater Manchester.

It provides a range of facility management services from catering, school meals, cleaning and ground maintenance, to security, waste management, street lighting, civil engineering and signage.

Jacqueline Shalks of Totally Locally said: “We are excited to promote the subject of healthy living and positive wellbeing to local school children and their families.

“We are in an age where young people utilise platforms such as video and audio to express their views on life.

“We felt that creating a competition that enables children to express themselves in this way would encourage creativity, collaborative working and shared ideas on this very important topic.”

The deadline for competition entries is Friday April 5. If you would like your school to be involved, please contact
