Orange Christian School Prep – Year 2 classes were delighted to welcome Woolworths Manager Matthew Radburn on Tuesday, for a very fruity occasion. The Woolworths store in Orange provided a fruit morning tea, with the aim of introducing students to some fruit they may not have tried previously and also to enjoy some of their favourites.
School communities are increasingly becoming places where healthy habits can flourish. Prep teacher Rosa Cunial has been keen to support and encourage students and their families in making healthy food choices: “A healthy school community involves all partners sending children the same message; in the home, school, and community. Making healthy food choices can be beneficial not only for students but for their families as well. Creating partnerships with the broader community, for example a local supermarket, sends out clear messages that eating healthy snacks is a good thing for mind and body.”
Here at Orange Christian School we value the community support from Woolworths as they provided a healthy snack of fruit and vegetables during their “Fruito” break. It is a great opportunity to educate children in healthy eating as well as encouraging them to try new things.
