What a fantastic start we have had to the Padbury Catholic Primary School Walking School Bus this term for our fortnightly Feet Only Fridays! We had our first walk on Friday October 23rd, and we were thrilled to have an enthusiastic 27 kids and 10 adults brave the predicted rain (which never came thankfully!) and join us for our first walk. Feet Only Friday Fever quickly spread over the following weeks, and we had an incredible 67 walkers on our last bus! We'd like to say a huge thank you to the parents and staff who have joined us this term, and of course the children, who have come along to each walk with huge smiles. This coming Friday is our last walk for the year and we are celebrating with Breakfast Pikelets and coffee for the parents.

We would like to make a special mention to one of the WSB Parent Volunteers from South Padbury Primary, our neighbouring school. We ran into this lovely Mum during one of our walks, and she was on her way to their Walking School Bus around the corner. She very kindly donated a bunch of the star stamp cards for us to distribute to the children, as we did not have any yet. What a great example of how this initiative can bring the community together! Thank you so much and we look forward to working with you more next year.

See you in 2016!
