The Daily Mile

From Monday 3rd of October, all of the Glencorrib NS pupils and staff will be putting on their running shoes and taking part in a new initiative called the “Daily Mile”.

“The Daily Mile” is very simple to start in a school. Every day at 12pm we will change into runners and a rain-coat and will walk, jog or sprint around the pitch for a straight fifteen minutes. Most children will average a mile in this 15 minutes, however the “Daily Mile” is not a competitive activity. Instead the “Daily Mile” is a physical activity which is aimed at improving our physical, social and emotional well-being. It can also help children to focus and concentrate in the classroom and raise their attainment!

So let’s all get out and run about!! Ready, Steady….Go!!
