Tullibody Healthy Living
Friday 14th September 2012
As part of Abercromby's Eco-Schools and Health Promoting Schools work they have established a strong partnership with Tullibody Healthy Living.
The pupils have been busy growing vegetables in their quiet garden with the help of parents. Some of the vegetables that have been harvested have been given to Tullibody Healthy Living (THL) for their soup bags which they sell in the community, but more recently THL volunteers came into school to provide cooking and tasting sessions for the Primary three pupils, linking with their 'Farming' topic.
Each pupil was also given a recipe card to take home so that they could replicate the soup in their own environment and purchase the ingredients from THL.
Clackmannanshire Council's Education Convenor, Councillor Ellen Forson, said: "It is hoped that this exciting partnership will have long lasting health benefits for the pupils at Abercromby and the wider community as well as providing valuable, active learning experiences as part of the Curriculum for Excellence."
This partnership working has also contributed to the school achieving their Health Promoting Schools Level 3 Accreditation and Eco-Schools Green Flag Award.
