Walk to School Week

Scoil Gráinne is taking part in National Walk to School Week 2019, which takes place from Monday May 13th to Friday, May 17th.

An Taisce Green-Schools’ National Walk to School Week is a country-wide initiative which will result in thousands of pupils, their parents and teachers walking to and from school, to celebrate the environmental, health, social and financial benefits of active travel on the school journey. This is the eleventh year Green-Schools has run National Walk to School Week

Fingal County Council’s new Draft Climate Change Action Plan 2019-2024 includes a Transport Action area which encourages active travel and behavioural change.

As a result of this and building on the success of last year’s National Walk to School Week ’18, Fingal County Council hope that schools in Fingal will help achieve the target of 20,000 pupils walking to school all over Ireland on National WOW (Walk On Wednesday) Day on May 15th.
