Whole School Walk

The "Daily Mile" initiative in Breaffy N.S. in conjunction with Mayo Sports Partnership is proving to be a wonderful success. Each day the children in all classes run, jog of walk for 15 minutes, with total emphasis being on taking part, fun and enjoyment.
Once a month we plan to do our "Daily Mile" as a whole school group together in Breaffy Woods. As we walked today we enjoyed the fresh air and the beautiful colours of the autumn woodland. As the months pass we will get a chance to observe the changing face of the forest.The children and teachers alike are enjoying the whole experience. We hope that this initiative will foster a lifelong positive attitude to being active and to looking after one's fitness, health and wellbeing among the children.
