Child Healthy Lifestyle Programme
“Xcite is delighted to be working with Bathgate Enterprise to deliver this innovative project to the local primary school children.Bringing Healthy Lifestyle education through Physical Activity & Games works so well.”
“We had lots of fun with Xcite especially during team games like Castles or Dodgeball. We also learned lots about healthy eating, our portion sizes and what Red, Amber and Green foods are”
St Mary’s Primary School
Last year Enterprising Bathgate and its partner in this project, Xcite Bathgate delivered a programme of child healthy lifestyle classes involving St. Mary’s and Balbardie primary schools. The concept behind the classes is based around the NHS Lothian Get Going Programme. The aim is to provide a mix of Education and Physical Activity delivered by Get Going coaches and Exercise Referral Instuctors. The most important factor is creating an environment that is both educational and fun which the pupils will hopefully take into their adult life.
The pilot scheme proved to be extremely popular and the board of Enterprising Bathgate agreed to offer the programme to all the primary schools in Bathgate. The sessions are designed to fit in with schools timetables and will start in April 2017.
Xcite Bathgate’s expertise in preparing the programme has proved to be invaluable and their instructors create fun informative sessions much appreciated by the pupils and staff alike. Enterprising Bathgate looks forward to working with Xcite in the delivery of the 2017 project.
