International Walk to School Month

Posted on: 09/10/2018


Every October is International Walk to School Month – an opportunity for children to join hundreds of thousands of pupils across the globe celebrating the walk to school.

A generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it’s less than half and we want to reverse this decline - And we need your help.

So, take advantage of the bright and breezy autumnal days (before the clocks go back!) and walk to and from School! For those of you who drive to school, we are asking you to Park and Stride. This simply means driving some of the way to school, parking and walking the rest of the way. Why not Park and Stride from Mill Hill Broadway, which is only 20 minutes’ walk away from School.

 1 WALK FOR HEALTH - Walking = a healthier heart and a brain boost.

 2 WALK AND SMILE - Exercise has been scientifically proven to boost mood.

 3 WALK AND TALK - Walking = 20 minutes free chat time before school.

 4 WALK AND BREATH EASIER - 20% of rush hour traffic is the school run (and a lot higher near our school).

 5 WALK AND THINK - Walking boosts creative inspiration by an average of 60%.

 If we all do a little, we can achieve a lot!
