Positive Lifestyle sessions get pupils thinking about choices

Primary school pupils from Woodside Academy in Bradford attended a Citizenship Workshop at a Positive Lifestyle session based at our One In A Million Free School.

Their teacher Liz Wood who is also a St John Ambulance volunteer said “the children had lots of fun but learnt lots too, and the sessions helped them make more positive and correct decisions”

Some comments of the students who attended the session:

“I will take a good path in life” Amie

“I will really think about my actions” Keira

“I have learnt lots of facts and hope it will continue” Emily

Clare Sharpe who runs Positive Lifestyle said “the class was fabulous and they were great representatives from Woodside”.

As part of the session the pupils got to take a tour of the stadium and got an extra special treat when they managed to catch Bradford City FC Chairman Edin Rahic for a quick picture and question and answer session.
