The Daily Mile!

Wow! Wow! Wow! Aston Hall had a fantastic day yesterday. It was so lovely to get the whole school together and launch The Daily Mile! The children and staff were incredible. Rain, wind, sleet or snow, we still gave it our all!

We were very lucky to have the inspirational Ray Mathews to help us along the way. Last year, Ray decided at the age of 75 he would run 75 marathons to raise money for Newman School in Rotherham. He started the morning by doing a whole school assembly, and then he took to the playground to officially launch The Daily Mile with all children and staff. We were even joined by Rotherham Advertiser to capture the moment!

So many children have already achieved their mile in 15 minutes and others are going to keep going until they reach it! We are looking forward to keeping The Daily Mile going throughout the school day.
