Big Travel Challenge 2023

January 31, 2023

By Lisa

Starting tomorrow, February 1st, Our School will take part in the Big Travel Challenge run by the Green Schools. This challenge will run for 10 days.

Help us to cut down the traffic congestion and car fumes at the school gate by walking to school. Children and parents can ‘park and stride’ by driving part of the journey and walking the rest of the way to school.

A great way to get some exercise in the morning, while also helping the environment.

Help us to keep our school a cleaner, healthier environment, by cutting down on traffic at the gate! 😃
