The Pompey Monster Walk to School Challenge was initially a pilot scheme to encourage children to walk to school regularly. Following its success in seven Portsmouth schools, including most recently Langstone Infants and Juniors, we continue to offer the initiative to other schools in the city. The next schools to participate in the Pompey Monster Walk to School Challenge are:
- ARK Ayrton Primary Academy
- St John’s Cathedral Catholic Primary School
This seven-week challenge runs from Monday 1 October until Friday 16 November 2018. Follow the link to sign up a pupil from one of these schools now. You will need to sign up before Thursday 27 September 2018. Pupils who have signed up for the challenge will receive a free pack with everything they need to take part in the challenge from school by 1 October.
Follow the link for lots of useful information about walking to school.
From Monday 1 October to Friday 16 November 2018 you need to stomp (walk, scoot or cycle) to school at least three times a week. Each week we will visit your school and all those who completed the challenge will be able to swap their stomp chart for a Pompey Monster keyring. There are seven different Pompey Monster keyrings to collect, including a limited edition glow in the dark keyring during half term.
Things to help
In the future, if you don't have time to walk all the way then why not Park and Stomp? Parking a short distance from the school and walking the rest of the way in helps children to stay active and keeps the school gates clear of cars.
