Noisy start to the day for children
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.”
