National Walk To School Week – May 24th To May 28th.

National Walk to School Week begins today and Green Schools Ireland want to encourage pupils across the country to walk to school for some if not all of their journey.

This year’s Walk to School Week is made all the more significant given that last year, at this time, pupils could not walk because schools buildings were closed due to the pandemic.

The goal of National Walk to School Week is simple: encourage thousands of school staff, pupils and their families to get walking for one week and maybe they will walk to school more often.

Although the goal of walking to school may seem simple, the gains are many and complex, with walking having far reaching and positive environmental, health, social and financial benefits for us all.

To celebrate National Walk to School Week, Green Schools Ireland have organised a number of online talks exploring, among other topics, how walking impacts our mental and physical health, the challenge and rewards of hiking and mountaineering, as well as what it’s like to walk to the summit of Kilimanjaro and back.

All online events are free, but schools must register to access them (click HERE).
