On Thursday 26th September we officially opened our Daily Mile track with the help of Andy Turner, a three times Olympian. Andy has been a premier sprint hurdler in the UK over the last 10 years and has a Bronze medal from the World Championships. He spend the afternoon in school – leading an assembly on his achievements then working with Years 5 & 6 to deliver a training session. At 2.30pm he cut the ribbon, with the help of one of our pupils Joshua, after which children, parents and community members had the opportunity to do a few circuits of the track. We also managed to get some coverage by the Derbyshire Times who we hope will run an article on our event over the coming weeks.
Thank you to the Lottery Community Fund for financing the track and for our governor Joanne and her son Joshua who wrote the bid with help from the school.
