The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health & wellbeing of our children – regardless of age, ability or personal circumstances. It is a profoundly simple but effective concept, which any primary school can implement completely free of charge. Its impact can be transformational – improving not only the children’s fitness, but also their concentration levels, mood, behaviour and general wellbeing. The Daily Mile is a social activity, wherein the children run or jog – at their own pace – in the fresh air with friends. Children can occasionally walk to catch their breath, if necessary, but should aim to run or jog for the full 15 minutes.
Having spent all of winter taking part in The Daily Mile, the boys of St. Laurence's have now run in to spring and received their certificates for travelling to different parts of Europe.
Climb the Heights - Skipping Challenge
The boys from 4th, 5th and 6th Class have accepted a new challenge this year. Not only are they reaching the peaks of the highest mountains in Europe, but they are improving greatly at skipping and are having fun while doing so. This challenge is also improving their concentration and co-ordination skills.
