Class 6GR had the most pupils opting for green travel to get to school for the ‘Challenge Day’ contest date of February 12.
The competition was open to classes in all Thanet schools that are registered for the KM Walk to School scheme. Projects include Walk on Wednesday (WOW), Active Bug and Green Footsteps.
Class representatives Georgia Parker, 11, and Emma Page, 10, attended a certificate presentation at Leeds Castle. They also collected the prize of free entry tickets to the castle for each pupil in the class.
The children were applauded by KM Walk to School’s Buster Bug and sponsors Bel UK, Golding Homes, Three R’s Teacher Recruitment, Independent Music Productions and Leeds Castle. Other sponsors include Southern Water, Specsavers, Orbit South, Jelf Insurance Brokers, Eurostar, Countrystyle, Thanet District Council and Kent County Council.
Challenge Day lays down the gauntlet to schools three times during each academic year.
