Thank you for taking on the 10 day Active Travel challenge June 2018. We hope you enjoyed taking part and families are continuing to make an active journey to school where possible.
I am pleased to announce the winners of the whole school prizes. This is a really tough decision to make with a record number of schools taking part this year (100) and some really great activities and initiatives set up. Over 13000 children completed the challenge alongside 200 staff, this is an amazing result – thank you for all your hard work and commitment to the challenge and what it stands for.
Winning schools can choose a prize from the following options:
· Walk to School Event with Green Top Circus
· A Scooterpod, shape & colour of your choice
· A special active travel themed party assembly courtesy of Non Stop Kids Entertainment.
