PUPILS are celebrating being health champions after completing Live Well training.

Year five pupils at Richard de Clare school in Halstead have been provided with Nike footballs following the completion of their training with Scott Forbes Fitness.

The balls were donated by the Nike store at Freeport as the children have become Live Well play champions.

The campaign is led by Braintree Council with am aim to support children and families to eat well, keep active and feel good.

Children who qualify as Live Well play champions are primary school pupils who have been trained to motivate and encourage other pupils at their school to take part in play activities at break and lunch times and at other suitable times, such as an organised after-school club.
