Miles ahead

Wrockwardine Wood Church of England Junior School has become the second school to officially open their new Daily Mile track funded in part by Telford & Wrekin Council’s Let’s Get Telford Active campaign.

The school turned out in the autumn sunshine to see T&W Mayor Cllr Stephen Reynolds, officially open the new Daily Mile track before pupils had their chance to run a full lap. The school received a £4,000 grant from T&W Council’s Let’s Get Telford Active Fund and local automotive company TJ Vickers also provided £500 to help make the all-weather track possible.

Head Julie Henry said, “The new track will make regular exercise more inclusive and accessible to all our pupils. Since we have encouraged 15 minutes of activity each day, we’ve noticed pupils relax and concentrate more in class as the exercise help frustrations and tensions to disappear. We’ve also noticed our obesity rates drop and fitness levels rise.”
