Rang 4 are Up and Running in 2019
4th Class are participating in the Daily Mile this month. The Daily Mile is a popular, simple and free initiative that sees children run or jog for 15 minutes every day in their primary and nursery schools. Further information can be found on thedailymile.ie. It is inclusive and non-competitive, and hopefully by the end of the 4 weeks, all children will be able to jog or run non-stop for 15 minutes.
The boys and girls have been very enthusiastic and encouraging, and are really enjoying the challenge. This is part of our Health Promoting Schools initiative. The benefits of exercise and
movement breaks throughout the school day are proven to increase the wellbeing of the child as well as increasing their concentration in the classroom. So it's a WIN-WIN!!!
