WOW - Walk to School
WALK TO SCHOOL AND CREATE A LASTING IMPACT!
WOW is a pupil-led initiative where children self-report how they get to school everyday, using the interactive WOW Travel Tracker. If they travel sustainably (walk, cycle or scoot) once a week for a month, they get rewarded with a badge. It's that easy!
If you drive to school everyday, you could park a few streets away from the school so that the children can park and stride and get some physical activity on the way to school. If you catch the bus, you could get off a stop or two earlier, so that the children can get more steps in each day.
REMEMBER - any extra steps that the children can take each day, all adds up to the Government's recommended 60 minutes of physical activity per day. This helps to keep children active, reduce obesity and encourage active lifestyles.
