A primary school has obesity in its sights with a project aiming to inspire children, staff and parents to live healthier lifestyles.
Tyssen Community Primary School in Oldhill Street, Stamford Hill, has launched an initiative featuring morning workouts, first aid courses, cycling sessions and healthy lunch workshops.
The project was launched at the school on Wednesday, when a host of organisations set up stall in the playground to raise awareness of their work.
School activities partner Michelle Amooty said: “The event was excellent and really well attended, with people from all over the borough attending. The Arsenal mascot Gunnersaurus went down a storm with the children and adults alike.
“We had over 80 parents sign up for health services on the day.”
