A fun week that encourages primary school children and their families to walk, cycle, scoot or skate to school.
Monday 7 March to Friday 11 March 2022
We’ll be celebrating an entire week of walking and wheeling to school. Each day will have a different theme, with competitions and prizes to reward those children who actively travel to school.
||What does it involve?
||Move it Monday
||It’s time to get moving. What will you choose for your first active commute? Walk? Run? Bike? Scooter? Skate? Or will it be a hop, a skip and a jump?
||Let’s take care of our environment. How many pieces of rubbish can you pick up and put in the bin on your way to school? (Remember to wash your hands!)
||Walk or Wheel Day
||Yay! Today is Walk or Wheel Day. Get decorating – who will arrive on the best-dressed wheels?
||Think about it Thursday
||Think about how you’ve been getting to school this week. Was it fun? What did you enjoy? If you usually come by car, would you want to walk or wheel more often?
||Funky feet Friday
||Put your best feet forward! Wear your funkiest footwear – wheelies, gumboots, footy boots, flippers, or jazz up your sneakers with glitter, tinsel, feathers. Just get creative!
Whether you join us for one day or the whole week, we’d love to have you walking and wheeling with us. Make sure your school registers early to stay up to speed with what’s happening and to find out about incredible prizes you could win. More details to come!
