Winter Walk Day
Winter Walk Day is celebrated by schools across the province on the first Wednesday of February each year.
Walking and wheeling to and from school is fun every day so we encourage you to #JourneyOutside throughout the entire month of February.
A great way to celebrate is by holding an event in your school community. But, that would not be appropriate in light of the ongoing challenges presented by the lingering pandemic. However, we encourage schools to continue to promote walking as a safe, healthy choice for students and families for the journey to school. The activity ideas and resources below can help promote Winter Walk Day in your community.
Remember to choose the ones that work best with the current provincial/regional Covid19 restrictions.
