Healthy Schools London celebration event
EGT winners and finalists were delighted to be invited to perform at the prestigious healthy schools London celebration event at City Hall on 28 June 2018 chaired by Joanne McCartney Deputy Mayor of Education and Childcare. The inspirational morning showcased excellent work of the capital’s schools to support the wellbeing of their pupils.
As part of the Mayor of London’s healthy schools London programme, representatives from 130 schools came to City Hall to receive awards for their work to promote healthy eating, physical activity, emotional health and wellbeing, and personal, social and health education. The ceremony welcomed headteachers and education and health leaders from award-winning schools. As well as award presentations, the ceremony also included speeches from NHS doctor and TV presenter Dr Ranj Singh, Andrew Pembrooke from Teach SRE, and a number of schools across the capital which shared their best practice.
About EGT 2017
The competition's theme was mental health and emotional wellbeing, as evidence suggests that creative and performing arts can help the physical and mental wellbeing of many pupils, building confidence and allowing them to relax, whilst being inspired and challenged.
The final took place in November 2017 and you can read more about the EGT competition, winners and prizes .
EGT high school winner Lyric has been awarded two tickets for outdoor concert Classic Ibiza, Hatfield in association with Ministry of Sound on 1 September 2018 as the second part of the bespoke prize with a meet and greet arranged with performers from Urban Soul Orchestra.
