Paralympian opens track


One of Telford’s most famous sons, Paralympic gold medallist Mickey Bushell MBE, recently opened the new Daily Mile track at Grange Park Primary School in Stirchley. The free initiative sees children run or jog at their own pace each day for 15 minutes. The school is also opening the track on Thursdays after school for parents to join in too.

Grange Park’s head Richard Thorpe explains, “The Daily Mile is a great example of a simple, free inclusive exercise to boost the wellbeing of the whole school and the community around it.

Children are more settled in their work, concentration levels have improved and fitness levels are also on the up. It’s great to see children and the teachers really enjoying the initiative and we hope parents will also get on board.”
