Dunbar Primary School 'Walk to School'
Once again we are supporting Walk to School Month, an annual initiative held in October that aims to promote healthy living. The initiative also aims to reduce levels of traffic and make roads safer for all.
With the evenings drawing in as the darker months approach, we have handed over 400 high-visibility snap bands to Dunbar Primary School – Lochend Campus to help keep pupils safe on their way to and from school.
The donation forms part of a national Taylor Wimpey scheme to supply more than 14,900 snap bands to schoolchildren all across the country.
Karen Armstrong, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Scotland, says: “We are thrilled to be supporting Walk to School again this year and are proud to be working with Primary 1-3 at Dunbar Primary School to encourage families to realise the benefits of leaving the car keys at home.
“Walking to school is a fantastic way for children to get active and we hope they enjoy using our snap bands to help keep them safe on the journey.”
Helen Gillanders, Head Teacher at Dunbar Primary School, says: “As well as promoting a healthy lifestyle to students, walking to school is also a huge help in reducing the volume of traffic outside school, thereby making the area safer for all.
“On behalf of Primary 1, 2 and 3, I would like to say a big thank you to Taylor Wimpey for this donation and for their help in raising awareness of Walk to School Month among our pupils and their parents.”
