Walk to School Week – W/B 23rd October 2017
The Braveheart Walking Bus will be running every day during Walk to School Week! We hope that this will be another successful week of walking. Remember, even if you do not live in the village you can be dropped off at the Eaglesham shops at 8.30am in the morning. If you would like to volunteer to help with a Walking Bus during this week, please contact Mrs Johnston-Smith. A little help really does go a long way in supporting active and safe travel to school.
The Braveheart route is led by teachers who provide high visibility waistcoats for the children to wear ensuring a safe journey to school. The Walking Bus is a great way for children to exercise whilst socialising with their peers. It encourages all to take an active approach in their own health and well-being. Please note that the bus will wait at each stop for a maximum of two minutes. It is parents’ responsibility to escort their children to the bus stops. Please do not leave a child at a stop if the bus has not arrived. As the bus is run and manned by Eaglesham volunteers, it is classed as ‘informal’. This means that all children attending the bus remain the responsibility of their parents until they arrive in the school playground.
If your child would like to join a Walking Bus, simply turn up on the day at one of the stops that are detailed below. I look forward to seeing you there!
