Health & Wellbeing
The Learning Hub Limerick spent a fantastic morning at Thomond Park on the 7th of February with various secondary schools around Limerick to promote nutrition, health and wellbeing.
The aim of event was to engage teenagers in a discussion on the importance of health and fitness mixed with proper dietary requirements. From an early age young people pick up bad habits which stay with us until adulthood, The Learning Hub attempted to combat these habits by engaging with transition year students around Limerick and teach how we can improve lifestyles through proper nutrition, healthy activity and education to our personal needs.
All classes were split into 8 different groups and given profiles of fictitious people who have a wide range of problems and issues, it was the groups task to take these profiles and outline what problems they might be having and how they would fix them. The classes came up with varied and imaginative responses to all problems posed to them and was deemed a great success.
After the presentations given by the group, the class was treated to a Q&A with Munster rugby players Keith Earls, Mike Sherry and Munster strength and conditioning coach Damien O’Donoghue.
The event was facilitated by The Learning Hub Limerick and Marcus Horan.
