Better weather, bright mornings and walking to school is here again! School bus people , you are already being eco friendly by all coming to school safely on ONE bus! Well done. For everyone else living in Musselburgh-make a big effort and Walk to School. It’s better for the environment and for our own kids establishing healthy life habits. This reduces traffic around the school. We know children are very concerned about the climate and damage to our planet.

If it’s just too far-please consider walking some of the way! Each class will have a chart and stickers to recognise the effort.

For parents -take a look at this website for ideas and information for you as a family.
