We intend to introduce ‘The Daily Mile’ initiative for all the children in our school!
This initiative is supported by Sport Ireland and Athletics Ireland and it has been adopted by over a 1000 schools in the UK and Ireland.
The ‘Daily Mile’ is a physical activity aimed at improving the children’s physical, social, emotional and mental health and well being. It can help children focus and concentrate in the classroom and raise their levels of attainment.
Every child will go out into the fresh air to run, jog or walk for 15 minutes on a number of days each week.
As a school we are really excited about this new initiative and we are looking forward to the benefits it will bring the children. Youi can find out more about how it works by visiting www.thedailymile.ie
