Running Initiative

February/March 2020-Our running initiative took place in the school. It proved to be very popular with the children. Each classroom was given a list of different European cities and the distance needed to travel to each city from Dublin. The children ran laps around the school yard in at with their classes at different times of the school day. Each lap of the school yard is the equivalent to 1km. The kms in each class were added up and each class ticked off which European city they reached on their list. We were to tally all the km(s) up at the end of 8 weeks to see which class has ran the farthest in the school. (Unfortunately, this initiative came to an early end because of COVID-19 March 2020.)
