Healthy Eating Week

Patrician Academy promotes Healthy Eating Week

newspage2-6Healthy Eating Week was embraced wholeheartedly by the students and staff of the Patrician Academy. Various events were organised by Michael McAuliffe and Catherine Kelly to promote the awareness of healthy eating. It kicked off on Monday the 28th February with HSE Nutritionist, Ms. Karen O’Mahony. She lectured the students on the benefits of healthy eating while Super Valu kindly delivered both fruit and yoghurt to the students and staff of the Academy.

On Tuesday students received a very informative cooking demonstration from Ian Lucey of Lucey’s Butchers.

Again students were very lucky, when both Springfort Hall and Sheehan’s Greengrocers delivered fruit which was available to the students in the canteen as was the staff who received fresh bread and scones from Brudair’s bakery and Jenny’s Bakery.

Finally on Thursday, Ms. Aine O’Riordan from the Irish Heart Foundation gave a very informative lecture to the students.
