Walk to School Week
Next week is ‘Walk to School week’ from Monday 29th April-Friday 3rd May 2013. We would like as many children and parents as possible to walk to school. Walking to school is very beneficial to children as it keeps them fit and it may reduce the traffic outside the school and save parents from getting stuck in it!
All children have the challenge of walking 5 times next week, so that means walking everyday from Monday to Friday. If your child completes this challenge they will receive a badge and certificate at the end of the week.
Parents can take part in our ‘Park & Stride’ scheme. This is for parents who would like to park at the top of Springfield road, in Wickes car park or Sira’s car park (at the back) and then walk to or from school with their children. This is a brilliant way of children getting some exercise each day! During ‘Walk to School Week’, myself and other members of staff will be meeting parents and children outside Sira’s at 8.10am and we can then all walk down together! Please remember that parents will be required to walk down Springfield Road with their children.
