We are currently raising funds to have a track installed around the outside of our school field so that the children can take part in the Daily Mile and get at least 15 minutes of planned exercise every day.
We have applied for grants to have the track installed and last week we found out we have been successful in one of our bids to be part of the ‘Tesco Bags of Help Scheme’. From the 1st January to 28th February, customers of Tesco stores in our region canvote between our project and 2 others each time they shop.
The winning project will receive £4,000, second place will receive £2,000 and third place will receive £1,000.
Stores in our Region are:
BRIDGNORTH TELFRD EXP WV16 4DX
HAYGATE RD TELFRD EXP TF1 1QA
HERMITAGE EXPRESS WV15 5AP
Madeley TF7 5AB
Telford TF1 2DE
TELFORD HADLY CTR EXP TF1 5NF
The Daily Mile website states that children taking part in the Daily Mile become much fitter within just 4 weeks. The Daily Mile is very helpful in reducing childhood inactivity and obesity and children bring the benefits home, often eating and sleeping better and encouraging their families to be active together. The 15 minute break from lessons is invigorating and leaves children more focused and ready to learn. The time spent outside, in almost all weathers, helps children become better engaged with the outdoors and aware of nature and the seasons.
