Noisy start to the day for chil­dren

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOL REPORT -

CHIL­DREN made a lot of noise on their morn­ing jour­ney last week to pro­mote walk­ing to school.

Elmtree School in Che­sham cel­e­brated Walk to School Week with a mu­si­cal fi­nale on Fri­day last week, with chil­dren and their fam­i­lies gath­er­ing in The El­giva’s car park to take part in a mu­si­cal walk to school.

The pupils played trum­pets, tam­bourines, drums and a whole host of other in­stru­ments on their way to school, in­clud­ing many which had been home­made by the chil­dren.

The chil­dren were joined by sev­eral spe­cial char­ac­ters in­clud­ing two of the school’s staff Les­ley Chap­man and Emma Hay­ward, dressed as the Tiger who came to Tea and his mon­key friend, along with Strider, the county’s walk­ing mas­cot, and Che­sham’s mayor Mo Fayyaz.

Deputy head­teacher Jane Gard­ner said: “The school’s keen to pro­mote walk­ing to school as part of its trave plan and en­cour­age par­ents to ei­ther walk or at least, park fur­ther away from the school, to make the streets sur­round­ing the school safer.

“We’d like to thank Michele Black­more who did most of the or­gan­is­ing of the event, en­sur­ing it was a great suc­cess and to ev­ery­one who took part.”
