THE WRIGHT WAY

Delivered in partnership with Aviva and St Johnstone Football Club, The Wright Way project sees manager Tommy Wright share his winning plan with local P5 pupils to keep them active and healthy.

Delivered in 3 components, the 5-week initiative encourages pupils to eat healthy and take part in daily physical activity:

Classroom Sessions: Delivered by Community Trust staff, each P5 class will take part in discussions surrounding topics of food labels, portion sizes and a balanced diet which are followed by short fitness challenges set by St Johnstone FC players and the team physio.

Cooking Festival: Supported by the team chef, St Johnstone FC players lead a cooking demonstration and Q&A at McDiarmid Park to highlight how quick and simple it can be to eat healthy. Each pupil has the opportunity to try the chicken noodle and vegetable meal followed by fruit and a healthy drink.

Activity Festival: Lead by Community Trust staff, pupils take part in an a variety of activities throughout the afternoon. Activities such as handball, football, parachute runs, relay races & netball are all undertaken with St Johnstone FC players accompanying and encouraging pupils throughout.

The Wright Way project concludes with each P5 pupil receiving a certificate of achievement from Tommy Wright and a goody bag.
