Levi Roots Visits AJS

    Children and staff at Alexandra Junior School had a real treat for their recent assembly when Levi Roots took time out from his busy schedule to support their campaign for healthy eating.

    He greeted each child individually as they entered the hall and taught them his famous Reggae Reggae sauce song. Levi’s warm personality and his amazing story was inspirational. He shared how he developed his popular sauce and how he identified a gap in the market that allowed him to successfully pitch in the BBC’s Dragons Den.

    Children could see how keeping fit, cooking and eating healthily and having a passion that you follow is important.

    Our E-safety thought for today:

    Does your child have access to a phone, tablet or   pc in his / her bedroom?
