MORE than 800 health students flocked through Cyril Jackson Senior Campus to experience 60 stalls at the campus’ record-breaking Health Festival today.
The Bassendean campus hosted students from Curtin University, John Forrest Secondary College, Ballajura Community College, Belmont City College, St Norbert College, and Hampton, Morley, Thornlie and Ballajura senior high schools.
The stalls includedhealth, crime, support, agriculture, fitness and government agencies.
New stalls included Oral Health, Water Corporation and the Sustainable Period Project.
Organiser and campus community co-ordinator Deb Fitzsimons said the festival provided information about health through games and prizes for students, who might be normally reluctant to seek advice.“I think it is the best we have had and part of that is the increase in students from other schools,” she said.
“It is always fantastic but I think it is one of the better ones because there are more guests.”
