Erasmus+ H.A.P.P.E.N.S Celebration in Haidari, Athens, Greece

An event in celebration of the end of Erasmus H.A.P.P.E.N.S took place in the 11th Primary School of Haidary on Wednesday 31st of May 2017.

During those two years all students, teachers and parents of our school and the wider community focused on well – being through healthier eating habits, an active life style and a work-life balance.

Students of all grades presented through dancing, singing, painting, reading and playing scenes of their everyday life showing the numerous benefits they have gained from this project.
The responsibility for coordinating the event had the Erasmus+ happens team with the help of many teachers of the school.
Local authorities, the mayor, teachers and head teachers from other schools, parents and families were present and enjoyed the ceremony.
In the end everybody left with a smiling face thinking how simple things can make our life healthier and happier.

Claddagh National School First Class Food and Exercise Diaries

As part of their homework the children are now completing a food and exercise diary for the week. They fill out the worksheet pictured below. They include their breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. They also note how many glasses of water they are drinking each day. As well as this they write down the type of exercise they have done and the amount of time they spent at it.

This is making the children and parents more aware of what they are eating and how much exercise they are getting each week.

The children also engage in peer assessment where they review and discuss each other’s diaries.

The staff and children of Claddagh NS have taken on a new challenge, to run 1km every day! In the news, we heard about a school in Scotland where the children run a mile a day and have noticed that the health and fitness of everyone in the school improved, so we decided to try it out for ourselves. We measured out a route in our school playground – if we run four laps of this route (marked by a yellow painted line) it amounts to over 1000m.

The children in 3rd class designed posters to advertise the Daily K and to encourage everyone to take part. We aim to get every class to jog or run the route once a day as a break between lessons or when they need some fresh air. We have only been doing it for two weeks so far, we were pretty tired at the start but already we are getting fitter. The important thing is we are having fun getting some exercise together! Wish us luck!
