Each year pupils and staff across North Tyneside come together and take part in The Active Mile as part of the North Tyneside PE and Sport Team. This is part of “The Daily Mile” as supported by INEOS.
This year students at Percy Hedley School joined in by doing laps around the yard.
10 laps of the yard equate to 1 mile and students either walked, ran, or wheeled around in the lovely sunshine to build up their miles. The Active Mile is a social physical activity, with children running, jogging or wheeling– at their own pace – in the fresh air with friends.
The aim of The Active Mile is to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health and well-being of children.
In total, our students covered 150 miles! What an achievement!
