The Daily Mile 19.2.18
As of Monday 19th February we are excited to announce that we are starting ‘The Daily Mile’ challenge for all children at St Alphonsus’.
The Daily Mile is very simple to start in a school. Without wasting time to change into kit, every child in school has the opportunity to go out each day in the fresh air to run, jog or walk for 15 minutes. It is not competitive: most children will average a mile in that time, with some doing more and some doing less. It is not PE, sport or cross-country but a physical activity which is aimed at improving the children’s physical, social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing. It canalso help children to focus and concentrate in the classroom and raise their attainment.
Please see the PDF below for further information on how it will work at our school.
Let’s get everyone ‘fit for life’!
