Walk To School Bus




On  Monday the 4th to the 8th October the JRSO’s ran a walk to school bus. We would like to thank all the parents for coming with us. Last year we won £50.00 for the effort we made on the walk to school bus and this year we hope to do the same. On Wednesday we counted all the people who where on the walking to school bus, there were 73 people and it was raining that day so we think that you did a great job to show up.Thanks from Holly and Olivia (JRSO)
