Lorna Jane Clarkson visited St Ursula’s College in Toowoomba on Thursday September 1 as part of the Active Living Schools program. The program helps students understand the importance of health and wellness.
To coincide with the visit, the school hosted an Active Living Day. Students were encouraged to wear their favourite active wear while the tuck shop supplied students with healthy and nourishing lunch options. Students at the high school enjoyed an Active Living education session, question and answer time with Lorna Jane, a motivating Move class as well as some free goodies to help them achieve better living.
Founder of the Active Living, Lorna Jane Clackson is committed to educating the next generation with her Active Living Philosophy. Ms Clarkson says the program was created in an effort to encourage young students to start their own version of the daily Move, Nourish, Believe practice to live a healthier lifestyle.
“It is our responsibility to educate the next generation on the importance of health and wellness and encourage them to get started now,” Ms Clarkson said.
“We all have the ability to achieve great things, so if we start sharing and educating this mindset to the next generation, the benefits for their friends, families and even for their own children later in life will be huge.”
Students were excited to take a few snaps with the entrepreneur before presenting her with a gift from the school.
