Children at Lindow Primary School were all involved in the running of a wellbeing centre, helping to organise and participate in the activities that ensure a healthy mind and body, for its annual Mantle of the Expert challenge,
The theme of the week was 'Lindow Lifestyle and Leisure' with activities that included: Grow Your Own; Nice, Not Naughty, Nutrition; Fitness First; Action for Happiness; Calm Crafts and Manage Your Mindset.
All parents and carers were invited to join the children for fitness sessions that included Pilates, Zumba, Yogabatics and circuits.
To round off the week, the children were delighted to welcome England and Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope. Nick talked to the children about his personal challenges growing up through to his fantastic experiences at this summer's World Cup stressing the importance of diet, fitness training and maintaining mental strength in overcoming setbacks. He then answered questions from the children.
Headteacher Miss Wilson said: "Mantle of the Expert is a Lindow tradition provides a great experience for all of our children. They develop a whole host of new skills and a greater understanding of how to maintain a healthy lifestyle, both physically, via what they eat and also emotionally. The legacy of mantle is also crucial. It will kick-start a year of many initiatives in school that will ensure health and wellbeing for all our children."
