Science Week Guest Speaker: Salina Taqi

06 Oct 2017

  Co-founder of Yoga X and the Ultimate Detox, Salina Taqi came to talk the Vs about eating right to raise their grades. Want to be a better swimmer, runner or even a better student? Eat the right types of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. A balanced diet will boost energy levels and help children focus in class. Ms Taqi showed a powerpoint highlighting all the good vs bad food types. She even showed a clip from the time old classic Popeye. She held the children's attention by asking questions and awarding house points making her presentation not just a visual treat but interactive fun too.  She then moved downstairs to do mindfulness with Class III. She had them visualise beautiful images, listen to the sound of the ocean, and say out loud all the things they were grateful for. She left them feeling calm and positive about themselves.
