Going Green at Wandsworth Prep: Walk to School Week
24th May 2013
This week the pupils, parents and staff at Wandsworth Prep School celebrated National Walk to School Week as part of our termly focus on the Environment and Sustainability.
As a school we are committed to working towards a sustainable future and equipping our pupils with the skills, knowledge and understanding that they will need in order to take up their role as global citizens of the future.
This week we set the school Strider’s 5 Day Walking Challenge, as part of the Living Streets Walk to School Programme. Each day the children were provided with fun activities to do in order to encourage them and their families to make their way to school in a sustainable way.
The five Strider challenges are:
Fun and Social topics
Each day the challenges were discussed as a class and children were given a chance to share their experiences. Our achievements were celebrated daily and the children were excited to see their efforts awarded on our Walking Challenge Sticker chart proudly posted in the classroom.
The week was topped off by a very successful Car Free Day. We have been thrilled to see the children inspire both staff and parents to make their way to school using Green Modes of transport; walking, scooting, bikes, car share and public transport. We hope that by encouraging the members of our community to make sustainable modes of transportation a part of their daily routine we can make a lasting impact on our school, community and planet.
