Time to think

Walking to school isn't just a great boost for our environment and a way to tackle congestion, it also prepares young minds for the day ahead - and can set a habit worth keeping long into adulthood. 

 

 

NEXT STEPS to secondary school

Next Steps lock up

Next Steps to Secondary school is our new walking challenge for students transitioning from Year 6 to Year 7.

Why the Walk to School matters

Happier children

It’s been proven that children who do some form of exercise, especially a walk before school, do better in class because they arrive refreshed, fit and ready to learn.

Less congestion

During morning peak traffic times, one in five cars on the road are taking children school, contributing to congestion, air pollution and carbon emissions.

Cleaner air

The school run alone is responsible for generating two million tonnes of CO2 per year. Imagine what we could achieve if we began converting some of these rides to strides?
