On Wednesday 8 February, pupils from Stanmore Primary School enjoyed a day of activities, ranging from sustainable food preparation with the College chefs, to raising their pulses on the Boat Club ergometers.
The children learned about sourcing locally sustainable foods to achieve a nutritious diet of essential macro and micro-nutrients, whilst making bread and soup and pedalling furiously on a smoothie bike. They learnt about the digestive system in an interactive session, led by Hannah Fletcher, our Head of Educational Partnerships, and listened to a presentation on food waste by Sixth Form pupil, and Winchester Youth MP, Dev Sharma.
The positive impact of exercise on physical and mental health was explored in an energetic session with the Boat Club coaches, before the children took part in the College's Elizabeth Project, planting 90 hazel trees and guelder rose trees, under the watchful eye of Eve Cavey, our Duncan Louis Stewart Fellow of Natural History. A key aspect of the project is to involve pupils from the local community, giving them the practical experience of extending wildlife corridors and providing a more valuable habitat for our local wildlife.
The day concluded with a training session with the CCF, led by Winchester pupils.
