Khandallah rocks Movin'March

Walking and wheeling to school was definitely the buzz point at Khandallah School's celebration last Friday morning to mark the last day of Movin’March.

A treasure hunt organised by senior students saw tamariki pouring into the school, scouring the grounds for painted rocks that could be exchanged for easter eggs and spot prizes.

The rocks were then shaped into a giant W O W - short for walk or wheel. Open space on the concrete forecourt was then in short supply as the students took to it with dance moves, chalk, basketballs and a whole lot of smiles.

Parents were very positive about Movin'March and comments included the pledge that walking and wheeling would continue beyond March.

School teacher Beccy Haley was enthusiastic about the senior team who had been running Movin'March activities at Khandallah School.

"They've been here every morning stamping passports and keeping all our student's motivated. It's such a great opportunity for them to show leadership and practice their organisational skills - and get active!"

Movin'March is organised by Greater Wellington Regional Council with support from Wellington City Council.
