Secondary Health Week

Despite a slightly damp start to the week, pupils at Moffat Academy enjoyed a wide range of activities, trips, talks and events as part of their annual Health Week.

The school put on a number of school trips including visits to New Lanark, Alton Towers and Snow Factor in Glasgow as well as various outdoor activities including mountain biking, hillwalking and kayaking at Carlingwark with the help of the Outdoor Education team. (see link below)

In school, pupils were treated to a number of talks from invited guests on issues such as healthy eating, LGBT issues, smoking matters, dementia and drug awareness as well as violence against medics. This was mixed with physical activity and sports ranging from zumda, hockey, rugby, pentanque and creative dance before culminating in a large outdoor athletics event organised by Jog Moffat.

Moffat Academy would like to thank all of our school links and partners who supported the week as well as the various sports coaches and members of Moffat community who all helped make it a very successful, informative and fun week for everyone involved.
