As part of the Sustrans Active Schools Travel programme we are holding a DITCH THE DARK DAY on FRIDAY 17 JANUARY 2020.
We are encouraging our pupils to walk, scoot or cycle to school and to wear their brightest clothing, or accessorize their clothes in a bright and creative way (hi vis vests, hats, scarfs, leg warmers, gloves etc). They may also decorate any bikes and scooters in a safe manner.
Parents are encouraged to actively travel with their children on the morning of Ditch the Dark Day.
** If you are unable to walk, scoot or cycle the whole journey from home, please consider a ‘Park n Stride’ option where you are encouraged to drive part of the journey to school, find a safe and suitable place to park up, meet friends and walk the final part of the journey (7-10 mins) – you may find this more relaxing than sitting in traffic. Our suggestions would be to park either close to the Nisa Service Station or close to the Post House Café and Trader D.**
This will be a fun day whilst highlighting the importance of being seen while travelling to school. We would ask for a small donation of £1 per pupil, which will be used by our School ‘Eco’ Council for ECO SCHOOL activities in the future.
