We did it!

158 Children walked at least once to or from school. Well done St Kentigern's Children!

 Monday 17th May is the start of WALK TO SCHOOL WEEK 2021
This years theme: WALKING SUPERPOWERS

This year’s challenge will focus on the walking superpowers that benefit individuals, communities and the planet.

Each day pupils will be introduced to a brand new ‘Walking Superpower’

Aim to walk to or from school every day to gain a walking badge.

Why are we doing this?

Walking has so many benefits from physical to mental wellbeing; aiding concentration and creativity and creating safer, less polluted and more welcoming streets. All that makes for a happy, healthy child set up for success in and out of the classroom.

We focused on plastic pollution.
