On Friday 17th May many schools across the country will be participating in National Walk Safely to School Day. The program aims to encourage children to be more physically active, to be more environmentally aware and to learn some important road safety skills.
Families are encouraged to leave the car at home or park the car a few blocks away so the kids can enjoy a refreshing walk to school.
This day is also a timely reminder that children under the age of ten do not have the physical ability to safely cross a road independently. Until a child is ten, they should be holding an adult’s hand when crossing a road.
We are looking forward to seeing many energised Vardys Road students walking through the school gate on this special day.
