Feel better with Great Yarmouth College

LOOK after yourself- that's what Great Yarmouth College students will be told in two days of activities, information and advice on ways to improve their wellbeing next week.
Five Ways in Two Days is a free health and wellbeing event to let students know what help and advice is available in college and outside in the community to help them stay safe and be healthy.
Experts from a range of organisations and agencies that work with young people will be in the Conference Room on the Southtown campus on Monday and Tuesday with demonstrations and information about health and fitness – from nutrition to drugs, sexual health to alcohol, anxiety to general health.
Among the agencies are the Matthew Project, the NHS, GFS Platform, Norfolk Carers, NORCAS and Norfolk Police.
David Lawrence, student welfare adviser –individualised learning, came up with the idea to help learners improve their health in five ways - by being active, taking notice, connecting, learning and giving.
“Students will be able to find out a range of information and advice,” he said.
“They will be able to watch the smoothie bike inaction and hopefully have a go on exercise bikes themselves.
“It is a drop in event but we are asking tutors to bring their students down and build it into their day.”
The event is open to everyone from 10am to 2pm on both days.
