Green travel champs’ day at the cas­tle

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

Pupils from Ash­ford have been re­warded for cre­at­ing the big­gest buzz around eco-friendly travel in the district.

Young­sters from St Teresa’s Catholic Pri­mary School were named best Green Cham­pi­ons in the Ash­ford area at a pre­sen­ta­tion at Leeds Cas­tle. The chil­dren re­ceived limited edi­tion Green Cham­pion T-shirts for or­gan­is­ing ac­tiv­i­ties that gen­er­ated the most ex­cite­ment among pupils about walk­ing, cy­cling or scooter­ing to school.

The judges were im­pressed by the school coun­cil at St Teresa’s, which or­gan­ised a poster com­pe­ti­tion to pro­mote green travel. The posters are now on dis­play in each class­room at the school.

Green Cham­pi­ons is part of the award-win­ning KM Walk to School ini­tia­tive led by Kent County Coun­cil and sup­ported by Ash­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil, Mini Baby­bel, Spec­savers, Three R’s Teacher Re­cruit­ment, Coun­trystyle Re­cy­cling and Eurostar.

Teach­ers who would like to reg­is­ter their schools for any of the KM Walk to School pro­jects, in­clud­ing Walk on Wed­nes­day and Ac­tive Bug, should call Louise Roger­son on 0844 2640291.
