The Daily Mile is an initiative rolled out in schools aimed at improving children’s health through daily physical activity.

Here in St Louis we have implemented this national programme as we really believe it improves not only the children’s fitness, but also their concentration, mood and general well-being. Frank Greally from the Daily Mile and Paul Caragher from Monaghan Sports Partnership visited the school on Tuesday 25th June to talk to the children and commend their great efforts.

They showed a promotional DVD and then some classes went out to do their daily run.  Many thanks to Mrs Hannon for spearheading this vital initiative in our school.
