Fantastic Fred

On Friday 13th May, Earth class took part in a presentation about Fantastic Fred. This theatre production explained to the children all about good mental health and that you need to be aware of the four components to good mental health. These include: Food, Rest, Exercise and Devices. The children learnt that you need to eat healthy and balanced meals to keep your brain strong and sharp. They also learned that you need a good night rest of at least 10 hours every night to keep their brains in top condition. Exercise was also discussed, with at least 1 hour of exercise undertaken everyday to keep the body and mind happy. Finally, the children learnt that devices should be used in moderation and should not be used close to bedtime as it can disturb a normal sleep pattern. The children became quite the experts in learning about what is needed for maintaining good mental health.
