Werby Mile initiative means children are on the run
Source: Chester Chronicle
Children at St Werburgh’s and St Columba’s Primary school are on the run every day.
As part of a healthy living initiative, teachers have taken inspiration from St Ninian’s Primary in Stirling’s Daily Mile project, where children walk or run a mile around the school grounds each day, and started their own – the Werby Mile.
Families and members of the Hoole school community were at the school to cheer on their children on the first day.
The aim is to promote not just their fitness and well being but also concentration levels, behaviour and academic progress.
