We started Walk to School Wednesdays going again in Week 2, after the kids had settled back into school. Unfortunately, it did coincide with one of the rainiest mornings we have had in a long time. For many students, this meant that parents decided to drive them to school. It was, however, wonderful to see the amount of kids with raincoats on and umbrella in hand still walking to school. I’m sure it was a fresh start to the day!
Leaders visited classes to reward these students with raffle tickets and on Friday we decided to step up the prizes (from the loved badges) to a couple of umbrellas, a drink bottle and a backpack! The drawn students excitedly raced to the office to get their pick of these prizes. It felt really great to reward those kids who saw the value of walking even on a rainy day!
