Co-ordinating the week, Newquay Tretherras Teacher Mrs Hayley Coombes commented, ‘This is the biggest health week we have put on at Newquay Tretherras. Raising awareness of personal wellbeing has been at the forefront of all the different workshops on offer to the students. It has been great to see students and staff taking part in them and taking a moment to relax.’
