Active travel to school plays a positive role in many facets of our lives we don’t even realize. From the obvious such as physical health or environmental sustainability – active travel also improves family connection, creates a sense of community, assists with emergency preparedness and decreases symptoms or occurrences of mental health challenges such as anxiety or stress.
Please join us! We would like to have at least four students or parents from the school community join us for this event. Share the word on your social channels and invite other school parents you know.
Looking forward to your participation.
