October is International Walk to School Month and now that the School Streets project is up and running, we have started tracking our journeys to school using an online travel tracker. Our aim is to make as many active journeys to school as possible be it walk, park and stride, scooter, skate or cycle.*
This month we are recording our journeys to school every day with the aim of making it into the top ten most active schools in Scotland.
Today we received our first piece of exciting news…
Abbeyhill Primary made in into the top 10! Despite yesterday’s awful weather we were number 7. This is a brilliant start and we are all looking forward to climbing even higher in the next few days. Let’s see how many of us can make active journeys to school this month.
* We would ask that any child wishing to cycle wear the appropriate safety clothing and that younger, less confident cyclists are accompanied by an adult.
