Walk to School Day

On Tuesday 21st May the Green Schools Committee of St. Nathy’s College, hosted a walk to school day. The aim of the day was for students to make an effort to travel to school in a more environmentally friendly way.

The mode of transport to school was recorded for 78% (367 out of 472) of the student body. 24% of these walked, 33% came by bus, 29% by car while 6% carpooled and 7% used park and stride. 3 students (1%) cycled.

Raffle prizes were given to students who came to school in an environmentally friendly manner. Mr Dunne, Principal, and Mr. Ben Battle, Climate Ambassador, presented prizes to the top raffle winners and to the three students who cycled to school.

Well done everyone. Keep up the good work for the rest of the term and into next year. Remember walking and cycling are free and healthy and don’t damage the environment.

Thanks to Ms Redmond and the Green School’s Committee who organised the initiative.
