Big Travel Challenge

This year, the Big Travel Challenge runs from Monday March 4th to Friday  March 15th. We will be encouraging as many students as possible to get active and walk or cycle to school instead of being driven. Walking to school is one of the best ways to start the day, with multiple benefits to one’s physical and mental health. It also has a positive impact on academic performance and behaviour, with higher levels of concentration and focus.

For the student who normally travels to school by car, we are asking parents to drop the student at least 500m from the school gate. You will be making the school gate area a much safer environment with less U-turns, less traffic and less fumes.
