Mile a Day challenge

Back to news

We are continuing with our "Mile a day challenge". The girls from 1st - 6th class did this last year and it was a great success. The teachers reported that the girls were always in great form returning to the class and are wide awake and ready to work! Between us we managed to run/walk the equivalent of navigating the coast of Ireland almost three times!

If your daughter arrives in school anytime from 8.50 – 9.05 her class may be out in the field. They are encouraged to run as many times around the field as they can so long as they are finished by 9.05. They do not have to change their clothes/shoes. If they want to wear runners, they may do so, but they must change into their school shoes when they go inside.
