Walk to school week 2023
What are the benefits of Walk to School Week?
Being active and getting some exercise in the morning before arriving at school can help set kids up for a positive day; improving focus and concentration, and instilling a sense of physical and mental wellbeing.
Walk to School Week is also designed to extend further - encouraging healthy habits for life with a focus on exercise, diet and wellbeing.
There are many health benefits to walking - exercise helps develop strong bones and increase muscle strength. Walking gets the heart pumping, which can help improve cognitive function for lessons throughout the school day.
Walk to School Week also provides a great opportunity to build strong bonds in the community and enjoy increased social interaction. Walk in groups with friends and take a look at your surroundings and what you can see on your route to school. Parents and teachers are encouraged to get involved too!
