At Saint Patrick’s, we use the ‘Living Streets Travel Tracker’ to take part in WOW - a year-round walk to school challenge.
A generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it’s just over half. We want to reverse this decline. We want children to be energised and empowered, so walking to school becomes their natural choice.
Every morning, pupils use the travel tracker website to record how they came to school. Pupils who walk to school at least three times a week or twelve times a month will be rewarded with a monthly badge (made from recycled yogurt pots). Pupils who 'park and stride' or 'hop off' will also be rewarded for being active for part of their journey.
