HFI want to enhance the quality of students lives by educating and motivating them to be in control of their own health, fitness and nutritional needs. HFI has a focus to assist/ educate everyone to reach their own specific goal. That goal maybe to lose/ gain weight, to mentally feel better, or to excel in a sport through development.
We are very aware that there are 3 types of student, the first student that participates in no sport/ activity, the second student that seldom participates but with a little encouragement will take part and can be quite good and enjoy it, the third student participates in as many sports/ activities as their schedule will allow.
With this in mind we have carefully designed services that will impact all students, and also assist teachers in guiding the student in health related issues. At HFI we pride ourselves that all our staff are minimum degree qualified, with some members qualified to a masters degree level.

Who is responsible for staff well-being and mental
health in your school?
If teachers are expected to support the mental health
of our students and teach effectively, we must address their mental health and well-being as well.
Stressed,exhausted, anxious teachers are not able to provide the psychological support our children need.
The aim of these workshopsis to put the mental health of teachers centre stage, on an equal footing with that of young people.
