Walk to School Day

Westminster ESC joined together with Westminster Primary School and Westminster Junior School to hold a walk safely to school event.

2 local parks were selected as meeting points. We then walked together to school. It was wonderful to see all the social interactions that took place among the parents and students. Often this does not happen when the students come to school by car.

When we arrived at the school there was a healthy breakfast waiting, kindly prepared by staff and volunteers.

There was a huge turnout and the picnic breakfast was enjoyed by all.

We used prizes from the your move points we had collected as part of our raffle.

Hi Claire. Great to hear you had such a successful Walk to School Day. Lovely to hear about all the positive social interactions that happened on the walk too. It really does remind you that there are so many benefits to getting out of our cars and making our way to school on foot. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the story Claire - is collaboration with the other 2 schools a common occurrence? I've inserted your image directly to the story and given you 3 extra points (you normally get 3 points automatically for each photo inserted into a story).
