Good health is the best gift anyone could have. And Charlton Manor has some extra special presents to remind us how to keep fit and eat healthily. The school has produced four funny toy mascots, which can be bought as Christmas presents.
The themed characters are based on the school’s griffin mascot and were created to help Charlton Manor pupils lead healthier lifestyles.
The yellow-winged creatures were officially named by pupils after a naming competition and each child received their griffin character as a prize.
The healthy foursome includes Swifty, a sporty griffin; Dingle, the smart griffin; Nibble, the healthy eater, and Gasmark, the chef griffin.
The griffins will be popping up in all areas of school life with their messages, tips and advice on leading healthier lifestyles.
The griffins were designed by cartoonist Richy K Chandler after Headteacher Mr Baker asked him to help encourage healthier choices.
The griffins are available for £8.20 on the school website or from school shops.
