Healthy Summer Toolkit

To celebrate World Earth Day 2024, we will be launching our latest initiative the Healthy Summer Toolkit on April 22nd. This toolkit has been created with support from Bupa Foundation and it is designed to spotlight the connection between physical, mental, and environmental health. The kit will help your pupils get active, inspire others, and spark conversations this summer. Keep an eye on your e-mails next week for its launch.

And Finally,

Good luck with your applications,
