Zakho Students Learn About Healthy Foods
On Saturday, October 7, 2017, Grade 5 students in Zakho International School, a SABIS® PPP school in Kurdistan, participated in a health awareness activity organized by the SABIS Student Life Organization®‘s (SLO®) Sports and Health Department.
Upon arriving to the school, the students were divided into five groups, with an SLO® Prefect as the team leader. Then, the groups were asked to make a display board about healthy food. The students had to perform many tasks to make an appealing board including, cutting and laminating pictures, as well as designing the boards. When the boards were finished, the students hung them in the cafeteria for all the other students to see when they came to school. The different boards included a display of food that were healthy for eyes, healthy and unhealthy foods, and the amount of sugar in different beverages.
The purpose of the activity was to engage students in an educational activity that could translate into their day-to-day life. Students who participated walked away from the activity with a better idea of healthy foods, and made friends along the way. “This is a very beneficial activity. The students not only learned about healthy food but also how to work together,” said a teacher.
