Daily Mile Challenge

We all know the importance of regular exercise to keep healthy and it is with this in mind that we have today introduced the Daily Mile challenge for children in the Junior classes.


Children in Year 3, 4, 5 & 6 now have the opportunity to take part in our Daily Mile challenge every Monday, Wednesday & Friday at 8.40am before school starts. Children in the breakfast club can take part if they wish to.

The Daily Mile takes place on the grass running track on the school field. Children, not in breakfast club, are asked to meet on the school playground by the gate to the field. Children are to wear their usual school uniform and school shoes.


The initiative is being run by school with support from Elite Sports.


We hope to have as many children as possible taking part over the next 6 weeks. The last session being on Friday 20thJuly 2018.
