Walk up an appetite
THE Como Primary School P&C is enticing students to walk to school next month as part of the statewide Walk Over October by providing another tasty breakfast.
Over the past 18 months, the P&C at Como Primary has hosted a number of healthy breakfasts at school to promote student wellness initiatives.
Along with healthy nutrition, new projects have encouraged students to engage in active transport to and from school through the newly started ‘walking school buses’.
With two routes available for students, north bound and south bound, students have been able to participate in the walking school buses on Fridays.
Como Primary School P&C president Erica Schurmann the next breakfast on October 23 would help promote the new wellness initiatives.
“The walking school buses are an effort to reduce traffic congestion and provide a safer pedestrian experience as well as promoting active transport to and from school,” Ms Schurmann said.
