Our events can be seamlessly tied into the Manitoba curricula for science, social studies, physical education/health, and other subjects. For a list of curriculum ties by grade level, please refer to Chapter 6 of our Handbook & Resource Guide.
Here’s what teachers had to say about International Walk to School Month 2017:
“Our IWalk ensured that everyone walked. Busses that typically come right to the front door had instead chosen a stop about 1km away. An awesome tradition that we have continued to participate in!”
” I totally love the visual of sneakers and tires for students who complete the route. Can’t wait to do it again in the Spring time.”
“It is a great opportunity and motivator for students to get outside and transport themselves to school without the use of a vehicle!
“It is a way for us to reinforce exercise with our students. It calls attention to how we arrive at school and encourages some to walk or at least to park a little further from the school! I think it is a great event.”
