What a fantastic start to our Schoolrun year!
It was wonderful to be able to see classes 3,4,5 and 6 running their mile together again. After a very long break, the children’s enthusiasm and determination has not lessened and we had almost record numbers participating – 58 children! With 7 laps of the track making up our Schoolrun mile, the children had to dig deep and encourage each other in the warm sunshine and many even managed a smiling sprint finish!
This weekly lunchtime event gives the children a real sense of pride and accomplishment whilst enhancing their physical and mental wellbeing. We are grateful to the parent helpers and Minnie and Ellie who make it possible – frantically counting the laps and sending the children down the finishing funnel.
Well done to all our runners, supporters and helpers. We are very proud of you!
