Life Education Bus rolls into Hunter Hall

Wednesday, January 25th, 2017

The Life Education bus made a pit stop at Hunter Hall School last week.  The team on board facilitate learning in this unique environment about all aspects of Personal, Social and Health Education.

Children from Nursery up to Year 6 spent time on the bus learning about themselves, their friendships and the choices in life they will need to make.  The bus visited the school as part of Hunter Hall’s PSHE programme.

Mrs Donna Vinsome, Head Teacher at Hunter Hall comments,

“Part of the ethos at Hunter Hall is about preparing our pupils for life outside the classroom and helping them to become well rounded, respectable young people.  To do this teaching elping to prepare Personal, Social and Health Education is as important as teaching the children about core subjects. 

 “The Life Education Bus is a fantastic learning space and the children loved it – they liked the unique environment of the bus in which to learn and the interactive ‘brain’ which helped them with their learning.”

The life bus will return to school later in the term to do some work on cyber safety with the older children.

Hunter Hall’s next Open Event is taking place from 20th – 24th March 2017.  To find out more about visit or call 01768 891291 to book an appointment

Hunter Hall pupils join Food Revolution Day

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

Pupils at Hunter Hall School took part in an international cooking lesson hosted by Jamie Oliver to celebrate “Food Revolution Day” on 15th May.

Food Revolution Day is Jamie Oliver’s global day of action to fight for food education and get children excited about cooking. It’s about celebrating the importance of cooking good food from scratch and raising awareness of how it impacts our health and wellbeing.

This is the second year the pupils of Hunter Hall School have taken part in the live cooking event.  This year, the children made Jamie’s ‘Squash it Sandwich’ joining in an online, live cooking video from Jamie himself.

The event was organised by Mrs Judith Wilson, a parent of one of the children at the school, and experienced cookery teacher. Mrs Wilson also runs a weekly Cookery Club, which is one of the most popular after school clubs at Hunter Hall.

Mrs Wilson comments,

“Food Revolution Day is such a popular event at Hunter Hall and all the children love getting involved and making something really unusual.  Most importantly it gives the children new skills in cooking and also teaches them the importance of healthy eating.  The children were introduced to several foods they hadn’t tried before, such as houmous, sunflower seeds and radishes and thoroughly enjoyed the finished product!”

In 2014, Food Revolution Day saw more than 10,000 events occur across 121 countries. Worldwide, more than 250,000 children tuned in to watch and join in with Jamie’s live cooking lesson; during which they made delicious rainbow salad wraps.
