Pupils and staff at Lisburn’s Pond Park Park Primary School have added 15 minutes of exercise to each day with the introduction of ‘The Daily Mile’ to the timetable. Every day, whatever the weather, staff join the 627 pupils to walk, jog or run around the playground as part of a programme aimed at increasing the time children spend outdoors, while having a positive impact on their physical, social, mental and emotional health.
