During the excursion, the pupils visited health-enhancing objects: the organic farm “Jenkalni”, the adventure park “Tarzans” and the rest site “Arona Mountain and Source”.

In the organic farm “Jenkalni”, pupils participated in the process of making apple chips - the choice of apple, placing, peeling and placing on the tray for drying.

The nutritional specialists told the participants of the excursion about the importance of healthy and balanced nutrition, a change in eating habits. During the lesson, the pupils formed a healthy food plate and played the game “how much energy would they have to eat …?”.

There was also a variety of physical activities under the supervision of a sports specialist, after which the pupils enjoyed delicious and healthy lunch.

In the adventure park “Tarzans”, before removing obstacles, young people presented the importance of this physical activity in promoting health. This physical activity was a major challenge for every member of the excursion - overcome obstacles and fear.

On the way home, the participants of the excursion were offered a delicious dinner at the bistro cafe Sauleskalns.

In the recreational place “Aroma kalns”, the participants of the excursion in the supervision of a sports specialist were fun to exercise in nature.
