In support of National Walk to School Week from Monday 15 to Friday 19 May 2023, we're encouraging all schools in Medway to sign up to compete in our new active travel competition, the Walkin' N Wheelin' Challenge.

The campaign aims to inspire schools, families, and young adults to travel to school using active travel over the course of the 5-day event. This is to help create long-term green travel habits.

Once a school has signed up, monitoring progress is simple. Each morning, conduct a simple hands-up survey of how many pupils have actively travelled to school.

Active travel refers to:

  • walking
  • wheeling
  • cycling
  • scootering
  • park and stride (walking the last 10 minutes of the journey).

The schools with the highest percentage of active travel journeys over the 5-day event will win the coveted title and will receive a personalised certificate as part of a photo presentation and news release. Winners will be recognised in both primary and secondary school categories. 

All participating schools will receive an e-certificate in recognition of their active travel commitment.
