Kids being told to walk to school

Walking to school

Kids walk to school

It might be quicker to jump in a car to get to school, but this week you guys are being encouraged to ditch the car and walk to school.

A new report out today says that about four in every 10 of you go to school in a car.

The charity that is organising Walk to School week say that going by foot is much healthier and also saves your parents money in petrol.

Walking can also give you the chance to have a chat with your parents.
