Walk Safely to School Day

Julia Calvert

With the rain of yesterday we were worried that WSTSD would not be much of a success!! However, the sun shone through the clouds and despite the cold we had a lot of walkers, riders and scooters. My group of helpers handed out stickers and a big congratulations was given to all students who walk/rode/scooted to school at assembly. We were especially impressed with those who usually drive due to distance but chose to park a little away and walk the rest. We just hope that this motivates students to choose this method of transport to school everyday!

Great to hear Julia! Was the 'park-and-walk' activity organised or spontaneous?

The park and walk is something we have been promoting and hoping parents take on board. It was great to see that some have done this.
