Walk to School Challenge
October 6-10 is Walk to School Week and Coronach School is taking part in a Saskatchewan in motion challenge designed to get more kids walking and biking to school. Our school has a chance to win $1,000 for sports and physical activity, students who walk all five days could win a $250 bundle of active toys and gear and there’s a prize for every student who walks at least once.
Although walking to school is one of the easiest ways to build activity into your child’s day, only 28% of Canadian kids do so these days. That’s why Saskatchewan in motion is challenging families to give walking a try at least once during Walk to School Week.
All students will bring home a Walking Passport and more information about the challenge. We hope you’ll take up the challenge to Give Walking a Try at least once during the week. Students who walk or bike to school arrive relaxed and ready to learn. They build independence, develop social skills and get some of the 60 minutes of physical activity they need every day.
