CHILDREN at Dogmersfield Primary School are powering through a new fitness initiative called the daily mile challenge.

Since the beginning of May, all of the pupils at have been out every day – come rain or shine – to run or walk a mile. It takes about 15 minutes. Yet even in such a short time, the staff say they can see the benefits of the activity.

The challenge aims to ‘improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of our children – regardless of age or personal circumstances’. It was founded by Elaine Wyllie in 2012 when she was headteacher of a school in Scotland.
