This summer a new holiday programme to get children active and encourage healthy eating is taking place at Newquay Tretherras.
The ‘Time 2 Move’ is open to all young people and is free for those between the ages of 7 -14 on free school meals in the Newquay community and wider across Cornwall. It will focus on fun, enjoyment, and benefits from a physically active lifestyle as well as educating young people about healthy eating choices.
In partnership with Active Cornwall, Newquay Tretherras is running two custom 4-day camps which will give young people the opportunity to try sports such as rounders, handball, tennis, touch rugby, football, basketball and a mix of Outdoor Learning activities, all based on the Newquay school site.
The programme is funded by the Department of Education, under the Holiday Activities and Food Programme to support families and young people. The Newquay Tretherras camps have been designed to improve everyone’s knowledge of nutrition and diets, reduce social isolation and increase levels of physical activity.
Deputy Headteacher Mr Richard Higginson is co-ordinating the offer and welcomes all young people to take part in a fun packed week of sports, creative workshops and activities this summer.
Mr Higginson explained, ‘This is a fantastic opportunity for our young people of Newquay to get back to having some fun, enjoying the company of others and to learn about the benefits of physical activity on both their physical and mental health. As a result of the funding provided all children will also have a nutritious healthy lunch provided. The programme of activities are all fun and participation focussed.’
Both camps will be based at Newquay Tretherras school. The first camp will run from 26th to the 29th of July, and the second will run from the 2nd to the 5th of August. The day will start at 9am and finish at 1pm with lunch provided.
