LETNS are leading the way to a happy, healthy lifestyle with Operation Transformation 2018.
The school community at Letterkenny Educate Together National School is all set to start the new year in their new school and with a new focus on health and happiness. ‘Happy. Healthy. Learn’ is the slogan for the school’s 2018 Operation Transformation, and Michael Murphy Sports and the Donegal Sports Partnership will be joining the school’s sports council to launch the initiative in the school tomorrow (Wednesday, 20 November 2017).
Week 1 – Exercise
“It’s a six week initiative that we hope will build healthy habits to last a lifetime,” says Nakita Burke, a teacher in the school whose recent win at the National Novice Cross-Country Championships is already building Operation Transformation enthusiasm among her students, “Our teaching and learning over the six weeks will focus on exercise, nutrition, well-being, fun, teamwork and mental health.”
“The children will be assigned active homework,” says principal, Áine Fabisiak, “and we hope it will be something that whole families can get involved in. We know that happy, healthy students learn better and we’re making that our main focus as we step into the new year. We’re really delighted to have Michael Murphy and the Donegal Sports Partnership supporting us and we have no doubt that we’ll see the spread of the happy, healthy bug across the whole community.”
