iWalk-Come Join Us on Thursday!

posted Oct 21, 2015, 9:57 AM by Rosanne Collett
Our school is very excited to be celebrating International Walk to School Day on Thursday, October 22nd.  One child from each participating school will have an opportunity to meet the Mayor, attend a City of St. John’s Council Meeting (where the $500.00 school prize will be drawn) and receive an iWalk 2015 Prize package. If you wish your child to participate in this fitness activity, we ask that you join us at Bishop Meadon Manor near the end of Foran Street by 8:15 a.m. We will start our walk at 8:20 a.m. and proceed towards the school. Please note that if your child travels by school bus we will ensure that they will be dropped off there to join us in the walk. Permission slips will be sent home prior to the walk. 

Please keep in mind that walking to school promotes safety, health, concern for the environment, a sense of community and physical activity among children.
