A latest Community Festival for Primary Schools, held at Redruth School last Thursday, created an environment for having fun, learning and building confidence.
Participating schools demonstrating their skills in an exciting and also highly competitive Festival were Gwinear Community Primary School, Pennoweth School, Roskear Primary and Nursery School, St. Meriadoc C of E Junior School, Trevithick Learning Academy, Penponds School, Illogan School and Crowan Primary School.
This latest Festival of Rugby for Primary Schools was also aligned with an inclusive ‘Daily Mile’, involving not only the participating children but Cornish Pirates players Tom Cowan-Dickie and Alex Cheesman, Year 7 students from Redruth School, plus teachers and family members watching the expansive rugby.
The aim of The Daily Mile is to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing of children. A beneficial social activity, children run or jog – at their own pace – with friends in the fresh air.
Healthy Schools Delivery Advisor, Rebecca White, also commented;
Cornwall Healthy Schools are very invested in promoting The Daily Mile across all schools in Cornwall because of the huge benefits it can have on the whole school community.
The Daily Mile provides the opportunity for schools to create a healthy environment for pupils, staff and community in a very simple, inclusive – and free way!
It also helps to improve the physical, social, emotional and mental health and wellbeing of all who take part.
