To fit in with this term’s topic work (All About Me) and Daviot’s drive to become a fitter and healthier school, I would like to ask parents to try and give their children only healthy break time snacks. Studies show making small changes in a child’s diet can have a very positive long term effect on their health, growth and development. Experts have also established links between good nutrition at school and improvements in concentration, motivation and achievement. I would like to start this initiative on Monday (September 19th). I intend to trial it with the whole school until the end of term; if it proves to be successful (and not too inconvenient for parents), I may decide to make it school policy. Obviously, I will coordinate with the parent council before I make that decision. If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Thanks for your incredible support.
