In our bid to make our St Matthew’s family as healthy and active as possible, we are introducing a new and fun way to capture all the exciting things you get up to with your children over the evenings, weekends and holidays. We want to show everyone just how easy it is get to active.

With the launch of our new twitter handle @ActiveStMatts. we would like you to tweet us photos of what fun and active things you and your children have been doing together using the hashtag #ActiveOwls.

Being active doesn’t mean going on a family marathon every weekend. lt could be as simple as walking the dog, helping with the gardening or carrying the heavy shopping bags! Whatever it is your family does to keep healthy, we want to see it!

There will be weekly winners for photo of the week and prizes to be won throughout the term.

We will also be using the @ActiveStMatts account to post about any organised activities and events that will be running locally as well as tips and ideas on how to enjoy a happy and healthy life style.

Follow the link through our website or go straight to @ActiveStMatts and see some of the things our #ActiveOwls have already been getting up to. We look forward to seeing your photos; make sure to also look out for the staff photos whilst they are in training for the Staff 5k Run for Cancer Research on the final day of term!
