On Friday 19th January we were very lucky to be joined by Elaine and John Wylie (Elaine was the founder of the Daily Mile).
They joined us for our morning assembly where they heard about our journey so far and met with our young people and staff to hear now the Daily Mile is making a difference.
They were blown away by the capability, enthusiasm and determination within the Oaklands Community.
We are proud to say that all of our pupils have been able to take part. Some of our youngsters were able to participate through the use of the innowalk machine (that we had on trial) others have used a variety of walking aids or individualised support.
We have set ourselves a challenge to walk 500 miles in a school year. Something we think is well within our capability.
