‘Schoolrun’ has landed! Last Thursday our lunchtime athletics club began where we are doing a 1.5km run ‘parkrun’ style. The field has been measured and marked out so that each week we can follow the same course, and hopefully improve our own time.
The children are encouraged to aim for their personal best and to support their peers in doing so. Certificates and awards are to be given out for completing 10 runs and then beyond!
We also have an invaluable team of volunteers who marshall, time and count and who are also to be rewarded for their fabulous contribution.
Our first saw an amazing 55 runners whose enthusiasm and efforts were outstanding and a joy to see!
