About this activity

Suitable for all schools and nurseries.

We know that your schools and nurseries are creative places and your pupils, staff and communities are bursting with ideas of how to get young London moving!

This is your chance to share your school’s own competition idea, different to anything else already listed on the STARS site.

Did you run a road safety badge competition? Could you ask your pupils to design a social media campaign to highlight the importance of active travel online? 

Thanks to a pupil at Immanual and St Andrews school for providing the image for this activity card.

This activity supports the Vision Zero target to eliminate death and serious injuries on London’s streets.
