For 2 weeks in February we encouraged all the boys & girls in our school to walk or cycle in the morning. We conducted a survey at the start, middle and end of the 2 weeks. Almost 75% more children walked to school or took part in 'park&stride' by the end of our project.
On the last day, February 17th, the entire school met at 'Cara Trá' beach and walked to school together. We had lots of fun and got some exercise! On that day, The Green Schools Committee presented a child from each class level who participated really well with a prize for walking to school.
One overall winner won a €30 sports voucher!
