Two Guernsey schools have been awarded a healthy schools accolade by a UK initiative.

St Sampson's Infants and Notre Dame du Rosaire Catholic Primary took part in the National Healthy School Standard scheme.

It involves looking at aspects of healthy eating, physical activity and emotional health and wellbeing.

Peter McGovern, Notre Dame's head teacher, said the school had worked hard to achieve the award.

He said: "It's the result of two years hard work, proving that Notre Dame is a healthy school.

"The award is validated from the UK, so an assessor comes over from Portsmouth just to check that our schools are operating at the same standard as schools in England."
