Winter Walk Day 2017 - Take the Roof Off Winter
(The following is provided for information purposes only and is not intended to be an endorsement by the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board.)
Winter Walk Day 2017 - Take the Roof Off Winter is an event is designed to encourage schools and community groups to organize a walkabout around their neighbourhood any day in February - to keep students actively engaged in physical activities such as walking and promote winter walking safety.
Unlike International Walk to School Day or IWALK (which is held in October), Winter Walk Day is not quite an extracurricular activity, but more of a health promoting curricular activity and is usually carried out at school, during PE or other health related class, and occasionally done at recess or lunch time - it is really up to the school to decide when they want to have it. Registration usually starts in January, and we are about to send out the promotion materials see info posted at http://saferoutesns.ca/programs/winter-walk-day.
