Healthy Minds Fitness Project
Students in Years 9 and 10 have completed an intensive project focusing on the impact of healthy lifestyles on our emotional well-being. Students have worked closely with Gavin Townsend from the GymBeing Fitness Company based in Redditch. As part of the project students participated in a series of fitness sessions ranging from circus skills, boxing, circuit training to football and rugby sessions. They have also worked with Gavin on exploring healthy food options to develop their awareness of the impact food and drink can have on mental health and emotional resilience. Students enjoyed the opportunity to visit the GymBeing base in Redditch and worked with local entrepreneurs to explore the world of health and fitness from a business perspective, as well as designing their own sports brands and developing their own fitness companies.
