On Friday 12th October, the pupils of Thomas Buxton donned their walking shoes and walked to school in order to reduce traffic, make healthy choices and encourage others to ditch the cars. The newly-recruited Junior Travel Ambassadors were on hand in the morning to reward walkers with a cup of sugar-free squash and a cereal bar as well as distribute special badges to those pupils who had made a conscientious choice to reduce car pollution.
I normally come into school by car but this week we have been parking a few streets away from school and walking the rest of the way. It has been good to get some exercise before school and to spend quality time with my family.
I noticed that there have been less cars outside school this week and that has made it safer for us pupils when we are crossing the road. It also means that entrances aren’t blocked and people can walk safely. Sudais
