DailyMile Logo NoStrap RGB30 primary schools all across Dun Laoghaire Rathdown are currently participating in 'The Daily Mile' health initiative which will improve the physical, emotional and social health and wellbeing of their pupils – regardless of age or personal circumstances. In 2012 Elaine Wyllie, Headteacher of a large Scottish primary school, realised that her pupils, like many others, were unfit. She introduced the concept of every class doing 15 minutes of a walk, jog or run daily and found the results hugely beneficial. The Daily mile initiative was born and now has become so popular that hundreds of schools in the UK participate in the programme and is also in countries such as Belgium, Holland, the US and now Ireland.
