Year 3 are participating in the Schools Marathon Kids program.  Each week children run/walk/jog/skip around a 100m track for 20 minutes.  They collect a band on each completed lap and count their bands when the timer stops.  This is then converted to kilometres and entered into the Marathon Kids App, who keep a tally of the distance logged.  Certificates are awarded for 10km, Half marathon, 30km and full marathon.
