Walk to School Week

28 September 2020 (by admin)

Hey with Zion will be joining with St. Edward’s in a “Walk To School Week” commencing 5th October 2020.

During this week, we are encouraging as many children as possible to walk to school if possible, either all of the way or at least a bit more than usual.

Walking all the way or some of the way to school has many benefits. As well as making the roads around our schools safer for pedestrians and other motorists, it is healthier and provides some of children’s recommended daily exercise.

Today, 64 out of 140 children surveyed (43%) walked to school. We’ll strive to beat that in the walk to school week.

Last year we started at 35%, moving up to 61% walking either all the way or further than usual in walk to school week:
