Meg wants pupils to ‘Walk ‘n’ Talk’ to school

Tuesday, May 12, 2009

Primary schools across Sheffield will be taking part in National Walk to School Week 2009, which has received the support of Heeley MP Meg Munn. During the walk, from Monday 18th to Friday 22nd May, pupils are encouraged to ‘Walk ‘n’ Talk’ on their way to school to experience the social aspect that walking together has for individuals and communities. 


Meg has sent a message of encouragement for the pupils taking part:


“Walking to school is something I remember with fondness from my childhood. I enjoyed getting out in the fresh air and being with friends on my way to school. It was also a good way of getting exercise to keep me healthy. I encourage pupils to take part during National Walk to School Week; I hope they will enjoy the experience.”


Walk to school is a good time for parents, carers and children to enjoy time together, away from the stresses of the traffic jam and the blaring of the radio. Pupils have time to socialise with friends, while getting to know their own neighbourhood better.


National charity Living Streets runs the highly successful Walk to School campaign. It encourages over two million children, parents and teachers across the UK to leave their cars at home and walk to school. 


Tony Armstrong, Chief Executive of Living Streets said:


“Walking to school is a great way to get some fresh air and some activity into your day. When children are bundled from front door to car door, they miss out on the opportunity to spend some real quality time with their parents or carers, socialising with friends and burning off their excess energy before getting their head in the books.


“We are delighted that Walk to School Week is part of the Change4life movement from the Department of Health and challenge everyone to give walking a go during Walk to School Week. We think you’ll be amazed at how enjoyable a regular walk can be.  It’s one of the cheapest, greenest, most enjoyable ways you can spend regular quality time together, and reap health rewards for all the family!”
