On Friday 18th March, the whole school took part in this event. Classes took it in turns to walk, run or jog a whole mile, cheered on by the other classes, who were all waiting to take their turn. Since last August, the whole school has been following the ‘Daily Mile’ routine, where classes try to get outside each day in order to cover a mile. As a result of this very successful programme, Castlehill pupils and staff were able to complete the Sport Relief Mile with great ease and enthusiasm. Older pupils were also inspired by Eddie Izzard who set himself the challenge of running 27 marathons in 27 days, across South Africa. They followed Eddie’s progress on the Sport Relief website. 27 represents the number of years Nelson Mandela spent in prison.
