Ready, Steady, Run!
The “150” Club running group is open to all students, teachers and parents. Runners of all levels of fitness are invited to join staff every Tuesday and Thursday morning at 7:20am for a run, departing from the gym entry.
There are beginner, intermediate and advanced courses (distances) to cater for all levels of ability, and each day students will record the distance they have run on their log sheet with the aim to reach 150 km (or any goal they set) by the end of the year.
We aim to provide an opportunity for all students to develop healthy lifestyles and improve fitness levels, and it is a great time of year to be up early going for a run in Lesmurdie!
Due to the fact that part of the running courses are off school grounds, students are required to print off and fill in the permission slip attached to this Newsletter, before commencing their program. Copies are also available for students to collect in the gym foyer.
