We will be running a Walking Bus every day between Monday 10th October and Thursday 13th October. Our Walking Bus promotes healthy exercise, reduces dangerous traffic around our school gates and reduces traffic pollution, thereby improving the health and safety of all our pupils.
The Eco committee have decided on a theme for this walking bus, which will be ‘silly socks’. We would like you to join us as you walk to school wearing silly socks! Odd socks, stripy socks, Christmas socks, funny socks, anything goes! You could even design your own socks. Each day, a winner from the walking bus will be chosen by a member of the Eco Committee. The winner will receive 10 house points!
Each child will be given a reflective tabard to wear on the walk. Please do not send pupils with bicycles or scooters as this can cause complications and can slow down the Walking Bus! We would like to encourage all pupils if possible, to join us for the short walk from the Broom shops to the school. Whether pupils are able to walk with us everyday, for part of the week or even just for one day, everyone is welcome!
We will meet at the back of the Broom Shops (on the pavement at the back of the dental surgery) at 8.40am every day throughout the school week.
