She explained that the surrounding area to the school is one of the most deprived in the country.

Yet the school is teaching the pupils and parents and carers how to live healthy lifestyles.

"We will also purchase a shed to store plants, equipment and materials for our growing project.

"The rest of the money will be used to purchase exercise equipment so that we can enable families to take part in exercise together and promote healthy lifestyles from a young age.”
