 At St Michael's School we believe in working closely with the local community. We employ our own FAMILY LINK WORKER, Eva Stewart (Mon - Thur) to support and develop our links with parents and the wider community,

 

REACH - re-thinking, eating and activity for children's health is a FREE 10 week programme of fun and engaging activities for families that encourages them to be fitter, healthier and happier by making gradual changes to the food they eat and the physical activity they take. Two qualified nutrition and physical activity leaders will  guide families through a programme of healthy eating activities, such as making healthy recipes, food tasting, how to read food labels, understanding fat and sugar contents in food and much more, behavior change exercises and lots of fun physical activity and inter generational games.  There will also be lots of top tips and ideas for parents for how to help their children be healthier, fitter and more confident.

REACH is coming to St Michael's on 23rd September!! To register or find out more please contact Mrs Stewart or Active Lifestyles Coordinator, Helen Newberry on 01454 863937 or healthylifestyles@southglos.gov.uk

More information and answers to any questions during our monthly coffee morning on Thursday 9:00 - 10:30 in our Family Link Room.

Cadets

If  you’re aged between 10 and 17 years old, you can join our Cadet unit.. At Cadets it's all about fun, adventure and community. We meet weekly at St Michael's School.

Guided by youth leaders, Cadets take part in an interactive and full programme, working towards their Grand Prior Award. The programme enables young people to learn important life skills in a fun and safe environment, but with challenge and excitement appropriate to their age. Cadets can choose from over seventy different subjects to help complete their award. These range from Fire prevention and Photography, to Sports and first aid.

Younger Cadets learn first aid skills through our training course for young people while older Cadets can undertake a community first aid or first aid at work course. Cadets can put their first aid and other communication skills into practice by providing first aid to the public at events or teaching first aid to other young people and adults. 24 of our Cadets have just completed their Level 2 certificate and therefore can now provide first aid in the community under the supervision of one of our youth leaders.

Badgers

If your under the age for cadets then maybe Badgers is for you. Anyone aged between five and ten years old can join our Stoke Gifford Badger Sett, which operate throughout the country. At Badgers it's all about fun and adventure!

Badgers take part in a lively programme, working towards their Super Badger Award. The programme has been developed to enable young people to learn important life skills in a fun and safe environment.

Badgers can choose from fifteen subjects to help complete their award. These range from Creative and Active, to Healthy and Caring.

Once a Badger has completed their membership paw, they move onto their bronze paw, which is awarded after completing three subjects. A further three subjects will gain the silver paw and another three for the gold paw. A Badger becomes a super Badger when they have completed twelve subjects.

Badgers learn important first aid skills through their Super Badger Award and various first aid courses. Badgers can get a really cool black and white uniform which they can wear in the Sett and at some public events.
