School council launch walk once a week

This Monday during worship the school council were very pleased to announce the launch of their walk once a week campaign.  The school council for the whole of this academic year have been raising awareness about safe and sustainable routes into school.  This term they have partnered with the living streets campaign, Stevenage Borough Council and Stevenage Leisure limited to launch the walk once a week program. 

The school council members will, each day, from Monday 18th January, gather information from their assigned classes about how children arrived at school.  Every child who walks once per week for four weeks will receive the badge of the month. The school councillors will also work out which class has walked the most and present a special trophy to that class each month. 

The school council have worked with Stevenage Leisure limited to secure the use oft he boating lake car park, have prepared the route and asked for some tidying up by the borough council to make the route safe and have promoted the event in school.  They now look forward to greeting the Mayor and other special guest on Monday 18th January at 8:20am as we 'Park and Stride' together from the boating lake car park. 

Here are some pictures of them launching the event - with a little help from their friends at living streets Charlotte and Strider.
