Health and wellbeing event for Raploch P7s
Events Management students enlisted the help of primary 7 pupils from Raploch Primary School recently to help with a health and wellbeing assessment.
A total of 24 youngsters from the school dropped in to the FVC Stirling Campus on Thursday 15 March to take part in an event organised by three HNC Events Management students – Nicole Gillespie (19) from Denny, Emma Scott (18) from Stirling and Courtney Furmage (18) from Alloa.
Activities in the event which aimed to promote health, wellbeing and healthy eating, included: Sport and exercise, fruit bingo, a sugar quiz and making fruit kebabs.
Nicola, said: “It was really fun and everyone seemed to be having a good time.”
Hospitality and Salon Services lecturer, Paul Cunningham, said: “This was an assessment event as part of their course and the students had to do everything to organise the event. This included arranging for the school pupils to come in, liaising with Susanne Morgan from the Stirling Campus gym and Craig Anderson Business Development Coordinator to help with their input.
“The event went well and now they have to review the process and say wht they would do differently if they had to do it again.”
Raploch Primary School teacher Kelly Ormesher, said: “This event was an excellent opportunity to make links between the school and college within the community. Students had carefully planned this event and their excellent organisation skills were paramount throughout the whole day. My pupils had such a fantastic time and learned so much about healthy food choices, but most importantly my pupils have been completely inspired by college education through the professionalism shown by students leading on Thursday."
