As part of our involvement with Sustrans Active School Travel programme we are excited to be holding a special Active Travel to school day on:
FRIDAY 25th October
Feet First Families & Ditch the Dark Day!
The aim of the day is to raise awareness of safe travel to school during the darker days and we are encouraging children to actively travel (walk, scoot, cycle, park and stride) to school wearing the brightest clothing they can!
Children are invited to get creative with their outfits and be super bright. The possibilities are endless – bright clothing, fluorescent orange socks, a pink tutu, a neon green wig – get bright, brighter, brightest! You are more than welcome to join the fun yourself! Please feel free to dress to impress in your best neon bright clothing and travel to school actively with your child on the day!
We understand that it might not be possible for everyone to actively travel to school the whole way, particularly if you live far away. In this case we’d encourage you to park in one of the nearby car parks and walk the final part of the journey to school with your child. In doing so we hope to reduce the number of cars around school and have lots of active kids!
Our walking buses will leave leaving Manina and the Warren at 8:40am SHARP on the day.
Our school car park will be closed to ALL traffic except those needing disabled access and delivery vehicles. We plan to use this space for fun activities throughout the day.
Looking forward to a fun filled Active Travel Day!
Many thanks for your continued support.
