We are so excited to have our 6th class girls participate for the first time ever in Marathon Kids. This is an 8 week running programme in partnership with Fingal County Council and Dublin City Council. The aim of the programme is to inspire children to run; and over eight weeks to accumulate the equivalent distance of a Marathon!
Students will perform four running sessions in school every week for eight weeks – inching them closer to completing their first marathon as well as learning about the benefits of physical activity. There will also be a SPHE (Social, Personal and Health Education) element to each lesson where the girls will learn about human physiology, diet and the benefits of physical activity. Please read all about it here: http://marathonkidsireland.ie/
All participating students will be invited to a Final Mile Event and celebration at a Dublin running venue. An information leaflet will follow closer to the mid-term break once venue and details are confirmed.
We wish our girls luck !!!
