YOUNGSTERS at Ely's St Mary's School are the picture of health - and now it's official.
The school has just been awarded National Healthy Schools status under a Government initiative designed to improve the health of schoolchildren nationwide.
Pupils and the school's Healthy School Working Party, which comprised teachers, parents, governors and the school nurse, worked together to achieve the prestigious award.
Home-cooked lunches helped to teach the children about healthy eating and they learnt about the importance of exercise and taking care of their bodies.

Headteacher, Mr James Hickish said, "We are absolutely delighted that all our hard work in promoting healthy living has been recognised".
