This is Creative Enterprise (TICE) has recently secured funding from Heart Research UK to run a Healthy Heart project in 6 North Tyneside Schools. We are now looking for the 6 schools who would like to be involved. The deadline for the application is Friday 30th September.
Drawing on our experience of working within schools in the North Tyneside area, we will create a series of workshops that will bring an awareness of heart health through both of our skill sets – creative writing and illustration. For the project outcome, we have selected a calendar format to promote learning beyond the classroom. The intention of which is to touch the wider community – Parents, Grandparents, relatives and guardians.
The project has been devised in line with the aims of Heart Research UK. Our target audience, children aged 8-11 are starting to develop their own tastes for food and drink. This age group will be becoming a little more independent in their lifestyle choices.
We aim to instil healthy eating, drinking and lifestyle habits into their lives before they start at High School.
