This week, all over the country, children and parents are choosing to walk to nursery, pre-school and school rather than drive. In an effort to encourage children to be active, and reduce the use of cars at peak hours, Walk To School Week has been hailed another resounding success with thousands of children using their feet rather than a vehicle to get to school.
The campaign is arranged by the charity Living Streets with funding from the Department of Transport. It asks parents, teachers and everyone travelling to and from school not to use their car for this one week. It is reported that 50% of children who wouldn't normally walk to school, have walked this week.
Walking to school:
WOW is the scheme that encourages children to Walk Once a Week. If they do so, they get a little metal badge designed by children in the national badge competition.

The next event is the Walk To School month...in October!
