About this activity

Suitable for all schools and nurseries.

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

Did your staff organise a sponsored walk-to-school-with-a-hat-on day? Do your pupils bake road safety-themed biscuits as a reward for those who walk to school?
