 Celebrate walking   and wheeling to school 

 in Greater Wellington 

Kia ora - Welcome to Movin'March 2021!

Ko tā Māehe Haere he whakatairanga i ngā hua o te hīkoikoi, pānukunuku me te kake paiki ki te kura.

Movin’March celebrates the benefits of walking, scooting and biking to school.

Greater Wellington invites Year 0-8 schools across the region to encourage whānau to get active to/from school over March. Walking, biking and scooting to school can help increase independence, physical and mental health, decision making and road safety skills for tamariki - and the school benefits from less chaos at the school gate.

There are lots of great resources also available to encourage walking and wheeling beyond Movin'March.

"We always mean to walk but it wasn't until a flat battery one day that we gave it a go! We then recorded the distance and set ourselves the challenge of walking a total of 100km to and from school and celebrating when we achieved it. We love walking - it's the best part of our day! We chat and play imaginative games and get to school happy and energised. Life's so busy that it's one of our special times to just be together without other distractions."
