St Paul’s Catholic Primary School, Yate


Visit from Strider

WOW School gate event with 'Strider'

Catherine McCoy, Living Streets Schools project co-ordinator came to greet the children and parents this morning,Monday 23rd January, with Strider, the WOW, Walk Once a Week, mascot. The Children are being encouraged to walk, scoot or ride to school at least once a week.

St Paul's is taking part in WOW because we believe that through getting more children to walk the whole community will see benefits. Walking to school keeps children healthy, reduces the amount of cars around the school gate, making the area safer for all  and reduces the amount of polution caused by the school car run, which helps our environment.

On Wednesday 25th January, parents will be joining our WOW monitors along with Catherine and Highways Department Staff from South Gloucestershire Council in a school route audit.
