Harris Academy South Norwood students take part in new Jamie Oliver campaign to ban energy drinks

Students from Harris Academy South Norwood featured in Friday Night Feast on 5th January on Channel 4  which launched a new Jamie Oliver campaign to ban the sale of energy drinks to under 16s. 

Jamie Oliver and Jimmy Docherty joined pupils at Harris Academy South Norwood, which banned energy drinks from being consumed in school last year, to find out first-hand the effects of these drinks in schools and how the schools’ ban has had a positive impact on their learning.

Jamie is fighting for legislation to curb the ‘prolific’ consumption of caffeine and sugar fuelled energy drinks by young people throughout the country.

Mica, Khanel, Muna, Ashane, Lambet and Maisie from Year 10 joined Jamie and Jimmy to discuss the consumption of the drinks amongst their peers and found out just how easy it is for students to get their hands on the highly caffeinated products.

As well as talking to pupils, the pair also interviewed teachers at the school about the effect of these drinks on students’ learning and behaviour in the classroom. They cited a lack of focus and poor concentration from those who regularly drink these products.

Nick Soar, Executive Principal of Harris Academy South Norwood, said:

“The academy had long recognised the negative impact of these
high-caffeine drinks on our students’ ability to concentrate and banned them from the academy in September 2016. The results have been very positive so we were delighted that our students were asked to take part in Jamie and Jimmy’s documentary to raise awareness of this issue." 

“I was hugely impressed by the students’ approach to the filming. The pupils involved all had a brilliant day and provided Jamie and Jimmy with honest insights into the effects of these easily available drinks on young people.”
