Second Walking Bus for Brookburn?

In an effort to ease congestion and promote healthy lifestyles, we would like to set up a second walking bus. The walking bus can help to improve your child’s/children’s safety on the school journey. Walking to school is an ideal way to increase the amount of exercise your child/ren gets, as well as helping them develop essential pedestrian skills for later in life. 

Children will walk to school as a group, using the agreed route, under the supervision of at least two responsible adults: a ‘driver’ and a ‘conductor’. There will be set places along the way where children can join the ‘bus’.

The proposed new route new route is between the Chandos Road South/Egerton Road South area, towards Brookburn Primary via the Corkland Road/Sandy Lane area before crossing over to Beech Road Park area and on to school.

If you are interested in helping with this walking bus, or you think you would take part in this new route, please let the school know by Friday 1st June at the latest. This will make it possible to find out if there is enough interest and we can create a walking bus register.
