The Claddagh Daily K

The staff and children of Claddagh NS have taken on a new challenge, to run 1km every day! In the news, we heard about a school in Scotland where the children run a mile a day and have noticed that the health and fitness of everyone in the school improved, so we decided to try it out for ourselves. We measured out a route in our school playground – if we run four laps of this route (marked by a yellow painted line) it amounts to over 1000m.

The children in 3rd class designed posters to advertise the Daily K and to encourage everyone to take part. We aim to get every class to jog or run the route once a day as a break between lessons or when they need some fresh air. We have only been doing it for two weeks so far, we were pretty tired at the start but already we are getting fitter. The important thing is we are having fun getting some exercise together! Wish us luck!
