Premiership Rugby's Something to Chew On programme, is an interactive project aimed at teaching 7-8 year olds about their own health and well-being with a rugby focus in association with The Supporters' Club, BT Sport's charity initiative.
Sharks Community Trust are currently working with the following schools, delivering the 5 week programme:
- The Cathedral School of St Peter & St John in Salford
- St Willibrord's RC in Clayton
- St Kentigern's R.C. Primary School in Fallowfield
- Holy Family in Salford
- St Agnes in Longsight
- St Ambrose RC Primary in Manchester
- St Andrews in Levenshulme
- St Joseph's in Longsight
- St Clements in Openshawe
- St Joseph's (Ordsall)
- St Charles' in Swinton
In session one, the children learnt about a variety of topics relating to diet, health and being active. The lesson was about finding out what the children already know and do in their everyday lives.
During the following 4 weeks of the programme, they will learn about healthy eating, food safety, food preparation, minimising waste and how to stay active.
The topics are delivered in both class-based and tag rugby coaching sessions and are linked to professional rugby to help the children think about food, healthy eating and being active together in a fun and interesting way.
