Running Club    

Running club has started off with a bang, with a total of 916km ran so far over the first half of the year term.  It is fantastic to see so many kids out, getting their bodies moving early in the morning before a full day of learning.  Just a reminder of our new start time of 8:10am and running through until 8:40am.  With the Churchlands PS Cross Country around the corner, running club is a great time to get yourself ready for the day.   

   For new families to Churchlands PS, running club is where students run laps around the oval earning points for their faction. Exercising in the mornings has many health benefits and is a great way to start the day.    

Some benefits include:    

  • improved physical and mental energy,     
  • a better night’s sleep,     
  • help maintain a healthy weight    
  • reach your fitness goals,    
  • enhance your metabolism.      

A reminder that mugs for Milo need to be placed on the table outside the undercover area before 8.25am.  Milo is an acknowledgement for the effort put in during running club.     

It is encouraged that students need to run at least 5 laps to get a Milo. Turning up late won’t allow enough time to get 5 laps done.
