Celebrating active travel to school since 2009
Movin’March celebrates the benefits of walking, scooting and biking to school.
The month long event is run by Greater Wellington in partnership with local councils and is FREE for all primary schools in the Wellington region.
Walking, cycling and scooting to school have many benefits for tamariki. As well as being a great opportunity for regular exercise in the outdoors, they improve independence, physical and mental health, decision making, risk assessment and road safety skills.
There are so many ways to celebrate and support students to make active and sustainable trips to and from kura, many of which can be incorporated into the curriculum in and out of the classroom.
There is a lot of flexibility with Movin’March; you might choose to commit your school to a week of events, or spread it out through the month. It’s completely up to you!
When you register your school for Movin’March, you will be sent a pack of resources for your students and to help run activities.
