Walk to School Week 2019
Schools across Ireland are invited to celebrate National Walk to School Week 2019, which takes place from Monday May 13th to Friday, May 17th.
An Taisce Green-Schools’ National Walk to School Week is a country-wide initiative which will result in thousands of pupils, their parents and teachers walking to and from school, to celebrate the environmental, health, social and financial benefits of active travel on the school journey. This is the eleventh year Green-Schools has run National Walk to School Week, which will be promoted to over 2000 participating schools!
National WOW Day
Building on the success of last year’s National Walk to School Week ’18, Green-Schools hopes that schools will help achieve the target of 20,000 pupils walking to school all over Ireland on National WOW (Walk On Wednesday) Day on May 15th.
We’ll have downloadable posters here soon for you to spread the word about Walk to School Week in your school.
Tell us what you do, or plan on doing, to celebrate National Walk to School Week 2019. Keep a record of how many people walked to school on National WOW Day – Wednesday 15th May! Remember to take photos of your events and get in touch with your local Green-Schools Travel Education Officer with your information.
