Mr Ryan's class are in full flow as they trot around the footprints in our backyard every day. Inspired by the Daily Mile Initiative, our track consists of .25 of a kilometer of painted footprints.
And instead of running a mile, the boys take four laps to run at least one kilometre every day. Walking is permitted too of course!
The main thing is to get out there and have fun!
We hoisted the Daily Mile Flag yesterday along with Olivia Bennett, Board of Management representative and Cilles Athletic Club member. Olivia is a veteran of four marathons and presented each boy with lovely medals from Cilles for all their regular running efforts.
Also in our photos is Mrs Eimíle Byrne, Assistant Principal, who led this initiative from 2018. We have lots of keen runners in our school but also a commitment to fitness for everyone.
Let's keep moving!
