Why Movin’March?Movin' March is about working towards reducing our carbon footprint as a school community and by encouraging our tamariki and whānau to walk, bike or scooter to kura everyday during the month of March we also give them the benefit of better health and fitness, reduce congestion and chaos at the school gate, we also get to slow down and get some quality time with our tamariki and the kids active before the school day. Walking or wheeling to school solo or with friends can be a real confidence boost and families get to do their bit for the environment!
How to make it work for your whānau
Instead of driving right up to the school gate, why not Park and Stride from Pou locations to walk the last few hundred metres or so to school and get your passport stamped at the school gate?
Walking School Buses build community and teach children important road safety skills ready for walking independently as they get older.
REMEMBER TO WEAR YOUR HELMET!
We have Pou located on Stokes Valley Road and Kennedy Grove.
