Walk to school month

Walk to school month is an annual event which encourages primary school children to walk to and from school in October. Walking to school is great for children’s health and wellbeing and helps to reduce traffic congestion around schools. Primary schools and students are encouraged to visit the Walk to School website to register and: 

• order free posters, classroom calendars, stickers, certificates and fact sheets 

• track walking achievements and be in the running for great prizes
