Parents Natalie Hood and Lili Nessa attended a training course to become school Healthy Family Ambassadors with Tower Hamlets Parental Engagement Team to learn how to deliver healthy eating workshops to parents and carers in our community house.
8 parents attended their first workshop which was a demonstration of how many sugars there are in popular drinks that may families buy.
The parents cut and prepared fresh fruit to make healthy alternative drinks that they can make at home with their children and families.
I enjoyed the healthy drinking session. I have learned how to make a healthy drink for my kids without sugars
I really enjoyed the workshop, I would definitely come to another one. My favourite drink was the orange, lemon and lime one
I like the workshop, especially the homemade drinks (apple, lemon and orange). I would love to join further workshops
Congratulations to Natalie and Lili for completing the training. Thank you for volunteering your spare time to help make our school great.

Natalie, Lili, Teresa Hockly and Jacqui Jenkins were invited to a celebration at the Professional Development Centre (PDC) along with other schools to celebrate Natalie's and Lili's achievements, along with other Tower Hamlets Schools and guest speakers from the Council.
Natalie, Lili and Jacqui also featured in a film about the project at the celebration . You can watch the film below. Come in to the Community House and join in the fun and learn how your family can work towards a healthy lifestyle which will help your child/children's education.
This 8-week course gives parents simple and practical strategies to help them confidently manage their children's behaviour in a positive way.
