During the month of October, all pupils in Bennekerry NS began the Run Around Europe Challenge in conjunction with Active Schools Ireland. One lap of the school pitch equated to 1km. Every child that completed a run around the pitch covered a kilometre. The total kilometres ran from each class were added together and the number of kilometres the entire school ran that day was then taken off the distance from their destination. We began in Dublin, and then went to London. From London we visited many places such as Berlin, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, Talinn, Riga, Moscow, Vilinius, Minsk, Tblisi and Ankara. It was an excellent initiative that the pupils enjoyed taking part in. Many pupils decided to do extra laps at break time and during movement breaks to try and boost the total and to reach as many destinations as possible.
