Not only does the Walking School Bus reduce traffic congestion around our school, and help kids to get physically active - it also gives us the opportunity to appreciate our surroundings on a glorious winter's day like this one!
This term we are focusing on recruiting some new walkers to supervise our kids. We had a lot of our regular people away or unwell last term, which showed us just how much we are in need of some back up! We'd also like to be able to take on more kids, and on some days we are at full capacity.
We've had to get a bit creative, as our efforts last term to advertise through the school newsletter, P+C facebook page, and by directly contacting local seniors groups didn't get the response we'd hoped for. So this term we are using our contacts in our adjacent high school, and exploring the options for some of their students to help us out as part of their volunteering requirements. Fingers crossed this is going to work out!
