ENERGETIC children shared a stage with dancers from Diversity after completing a healthy eating and activity programme.
The reward for year five pupils from Cedars Manor School in Whittlesea Road, Harrow Weald, was to meet the popular dance group, which won Britain’s Got Talent in 2009, at a celebratory event held at Stamford Bridge, the home of Chelsea FC in Fulham, last Friday.
Teacher Bridget Reilly said: “The kids said it was their best day ever. They were meant to dance with Diversity but in the end Diversity let the kids dance for them.
“They had a fantastic time and some of them even said they will never wash their hands again after shaking hands.”
The Eat Like a Champ programme, created by food company Danone, consisted of six interactive lessons which aimed to make nutrition exciting and encouraged the pupils to eat better meals.
Diversity created a series of dance moves taught to the children through instructional videos linked to each lesson, and the pupils received a Diversity reward for each lesson they completed.
Dylan Sheth, a pupil in class 5AC, said: “I’ve really enjoyed doing the programme. It has been great fun with all the videos and learning the dance moves.”
