The number of children walking to school has dropped to the lowest level on record. In fact, 1 in 5 cars on the road at 8:50am is taking a child to school. It’s up to us all to turn this around.
Reasons to walk to school:
- You’ll feel happier
Exercise boosts your mood – so if you walk to school, you’re more likely to arrive awake, refreshed, and ready to learn.
- It’s good for the planet!
If there are less cars on the road, there will be less carbon emissions. These nasty emissions are one of the leading causes of climate change.
- There will be less congestion
If you walk to school there will be less traffic and fewer people stuck in traffic jams. Surely that’s good all round?
