Organisers Mrs Walker and Mr Dennis said “Our winter Health Day provides a fantastic opportunity for students to try new activities, learn new things and focus on their physical and mental wellbeing, which is a real priority at Manchester Heath Academy. We’d like to thank all the session leaders, both those who came in specially and our Academy colleagues for making the day a great success, and to all the students who participated with so much enthusiasm.”
