Walk On Wednesday – WOW

Walk On Wednesday

The Green School Committee would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents and students who are participating in WOW- Walk on Wednesday.

Not only are you decreasing your Carbon Footprint but you are also increasing your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing, as well as spending important quality time with your children. It has been noted by teachers that students are happier and more alert in class as a result of this early morning exercise. We will for the remainder of this school year be continuing with WOW, but we also encourage pupils and parents to consider to park ‘n’ stride on other days when/if the fine weather ever appears.

Before we began WOW, 0% of pupils were making any attempt to walk/ park ‘ n’ stride. We now have over 70% of the pupils parking at the community centre and walking to school with a further 17% coming on the school bus and 2% walking from their homes. This means that 89% of the school population are making an attempt to lower their carbon footprint on their journey to school on a Wednesday. Every little bit helps!!!
The Green School Committee would like to thank all pupils, parents, and staff for their continued support and to keep up the good work. We look forward to further Transport Flag initiatives in the coming months and the next school year.

Don’t forget to recycle & reuse, be energy aware and conserve water. We want to keep the three flags we have and hopefully, add to the collection with the Transport Flag next year.
