On Sunday 18th June, 16 Coventry schools (including Coundon) took part in the Children’s Mile for the first time since 2019! It was lovely to get back into this community event.
Not only were funds raised for Team Coventry, but funds have also been raised by the event for local charity, Three Spires Family Support Trust. Alongside fundraising for important causes, the event was designed to encourage children to stay active.
Fourteen of our children took part in this event (from years 2 to 6) alongside Mr Scott and Mrs Gray. The lovely Miss Ferris also gave up her morning to join us and show her support! The children were great, they were full of enthusiasm and all ran the mile between 6 and 12 minutes, with one of our youngest runners coming 6th overall, out of around 500 runners, well done Lewis Scott!
Let’s hope they we can encourage more children to be involved next year.
