The Daily Mile is a social physical activity, with children running or jogging – at their own pace – in the fresh air with friends. Children can occasionally walk to catch their breath, if necessary, but should aim to run or jog for the full 15 minutes. The Daily Mile Foundation was proud to introduce Fit For Life, a version of The Daily Mile inspired by the successful children’s movement. It’s aimed at ages 11+, and can be done in secondary schools, workplaces, universities, secure settings, retirement homes, colleges and more! There are now over 8,000 schools taking part and Norham is one of them. Norham was the only school to take part last year and this year we had Years 7, 8 and 9 taking part with staff joining in along the way. The weather was awful as the rain poured down but this did not dampen the spirits of our determined and resilient young people.
