Monkstown Park Junior School

Daily Morning Run

Daily Morning Run

We feel very fortunate to be situated such a large school campus with access to the wonderful outdoors and fresh air. We really use these facilities to their fullest potential.

In Monkstown Park we have a dedicated running and walking track that extends around the full perimeter of the school grounds. This is approximately one kilometre long and every morning at 8.45am teachers, pupils and parents partake in the run before school starts.

We have seen the most incredible improvements from the pupils' level of fitness, overall health and well-being, not to mention being more able to concentrate in class during their class work periods.

We have worked hard to gain the status of being an ‘active school’ and endeavour to maintain this morning routine, rain, hail or shine! Considering it has so many health benefits why wouldn’t we keep it up?!
