As part of Healthy Eating Week June 12 until 16, Bishop’s Hatfield Girls School hosted a Health Festival.

Pupils enjoyed a breakfast buffet, free water, trying new food and smoothies, exercise, quizzes and learning how to plant and grow tomatoes.

The youngsters also got to watch a staff football match, eat free fruit that was available every day, test out unusual food, and watch Ms Nickson and Mr Kench cooking against each other and against the clock.
