Walk to School Day Friday 27th May


On Friday 27th May we are encouraging students to participate in Walk Safety to School Day. This is an annual event when all Primary School children will be encouraged to walk and commute safely to school.

To support this event we are organising a walking school bus

What is a Walking School Bus? A Walking School Bus is a school bus powered not by an engine but by legs. Children don’t sit inside this ‘bus’ – they walk in a group to school, with a teacher ‘driver’ in the front and an teacher ‘conductor’ at the rear. The walkers are the bus. This is how the bus works:

  • The bus travels along a set route to school, picking up children along the way at designated ‘bus stops’.

  • All children are welcome to join the bus, with or without parents. However parents are more than welcome to join the bus and walk to school with their child or children.

  • Safety on the bus is of high importance. The route therefore is thoroughly checked for traffic hazards, and children are informed of what behaviour is expected whilst on board the Walking Bus.

Please read our Walk to School Day information letter (PDF 380kb) for further details regarding the walking school bus and where it will be stopping on Friday 27th May.
