Running Track and Running Initiative

The running track has become a part of daily life in Scoil Mhuire Junior. It is used for movement breaks for all classes. The children love to down tools and get out for a run to clear the head!

We have also used the running track to complete 2 running challenges this year. The first challenge was for the whole school to  collectively run 50km, the equivalent distance of running to Dublin Zoo. We called this ‘Run to the Zoo’ and were thrilled with the support we received from Dublin Zoo. We smashed the target and have since started the second challenge. This time we are running to The Giant’s Causeway. This means we need to run a total of 3760 laps, which is equal to 312km.

There has been lots of teaching and learning opportunities around this challenge both in terms of maths and also learning about the destination. It has also helped the children to improve their fitness levels while developing a love of running. To make it extra exciting, the class which runs the most laps each week is presented with ‘The Golden Boot’. This has proven to be a real incentive! Our pupils on the Active Committee take charge of counting the laps run each week as well as presenting the Golden Boot.
