Active Travel

Active Travel

We competed the annual Active Travel survey with Mrs Iliadou this week. We monitored and recorded how each of us travels to school and then back home again.

At our school we encourage active travelling.

This year we had better results than ever before. We did more walking and used less cars!

We know it’s not always easy to walk to school, especially on rainy days or busy mornings, so we’d like to say a big THANKYOU to all of our parents who helped us ‘walk more’ when possible and for supporting our school with Active Travel.

Keep it up everyone. Well done!
