Walktober 2020

Students are encouraged to enjoy all the far-reaching benefits of walking to and from school during the next few weeks. It's a healthy lifestyle choice, reduces pollution caused by cars and students who have an active start to their days are generally more prepared for learning. It also helps young people become more familiar with the neighbourhoods in which they live.

International Walk to School Day is Wednesday, October 7th.

The City of Windsor has produced a calendar (below) that provides thoughts, suggestions and ideas to make Walktober more beneficial and enjoyable.

Students currently learning at home are also urged to but some steps into their daily routines.
