The 300 Club builds on the 100 Club available in the Primary section of the School. The 300 Club is a year round running club open to Secondary students (Years 7 to 12) and members of Staff. Parents are welcome to take part too. The aim is for each participant to complete a total of 300kms of running before the end of the school year. The Club operates two morning sessions each week of the school term before the beginning of the school day and is followed by a light breakfast.
The benefits that can be gained by attending 300 Club training include:
• Personal fitness gains for general health and well being.
• Mental health enhancement: improved concentration, self esteem and the reduction of stress.
• Goal setting.
• Training for improved performance in school cross country, athletics and weekend sporting commitments.
• Making friends with students in a range of year groups across the Secondary section of the School.
• Enjoyment and fun.
If a student is only able to attend the 300 Club for part of the year due to other commitments that is no barrier to participation. Involvement in the 300 Club is very rewarding and contributes to the overall health and wellbeing of the School community through regular participation over the course of the year. Each participant who reaches the target of 300 kilometres receives a certificate of achievement and a specially designed 300 Club tee shirt.
