Green Schools Revolution helps launch new walking bus

22/05/2014 by Green Schools

The launch of Hydesville Walking Bus - a group of children who walk to school together, accompanied by adults – coincided with day one of national 'Walk to School Week 2014'.

The Hydesville walking bus travelled a short distance through a picturesque park and into the playground in good time for morning registration. It made the return journey at the end of the school day.

Each pupil and staff chaperone wore a walking bus hi-vis vest, supplied by The Co-operative as part of Green Schools Revolution, which Hydesville Tower School are members of.

Green Schools Revolution supports schools wishing to set up a walking bus by providing up to 50 walking high visibility jackets, 50 snap bands, including posters and banners to brighten up your walking plans.

If your school wants to apply for a pack, all you need to do is log into your Green Schools Revolution account and fill in the walking bus application form.

Not registered with Green Schools Revolution? Not to worry, it takes less than five minutes to register and it’s free!

The Co-operative has already helped over 600 schools set up their walking buses, saving a total estimated 1.4 million car journeys, the equivalent of 308 tonnes carbon dioxide (CO2).
