Bristnall Hall Academy launches it’s Free Fruit Friday pilot scheme
We at Bristnall Hall Academy strongly believe in educating and encouraging our students to eat a healthy well balanced and nutritional diet.
With this is mind we launched our ‘Free Fruit Friday’ to inspire our young people to adopt healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime. To kick-start this amazing pilot scheme Tesco West Bromwich generously donated a variety of fruit; apples, bananas, pears and oranges, which was hugely appreciated by all. Bristnall Hall Academy are immensely grateful to Tesco West Bromwich and thank them for their generosity.
Fruit is available on a first come first served basis during break time to ensure students do not replace the fruit and vegetables they may otherwise eat at lunchtime.

Bristnall Hall Academy’s aspiration to make a difference in our community
A defibrillator for our community
This year Bristnall Hall Academy intends to raise funds for a much needed defibrillator and an external cabinet for our community. After some research we realised the nearest location of a registered defibrillator with access 24/7 is 3 miles away from the academy.
As an academy we have been successful in obtaining some funding towards the defibrillator project from the British Heart Foundation and a class set of 35 CPR training kits which will enable us to equip our young people with basic CPR lifesaving skills.
Mr Jeffrey and the Prefects will be organising fund raising activities to support this initiative. We anticipate to raise the funds for February 2017.
Restart a heart day – 18th October 2016
Restart a heart day is a national record breaking attempt supported by the British Heart Foundation to train and create a nation of life savers. West Midlands Ambulance Service will deliver the CPR training sessions on the 18th October 2016 to all our young people and staff on site. Further details to follow.
Both are fantastic opportunities for BHA to make a difference in our community. If you require further information please contact the academy.
