Million Miles

At LIFE Education Trust we know that being active and doing sports helps to keep both our bodies and our minds healthy. This year we have set ourselves the very BIG challenge across all our schools to together move 1 million miles before the end of the school year.

Our staff and our pupils are involved. Even some of our LIFE animals are helping us to move more. We have people walking, skipping, running, dancing, cheer leading, playing football, tennis and basketball.
