What’s it about?
It’s about getting you and your families walking to improve physical health and mental wellbeing. It’s also about discovering our local area.
How does it work?
At the beginning of the project every child will get a sticker book and some stickers. Every time you walk 2 miles or more with a parent, guardian or responsible adult you stick a sticker into your booklet. We will also give your parents an information booklet full of exciting places where you and your family can go walking.
The project is only for County Durham Primary Schools
and it covers Year 3, Year 4 and Year 5 pupils.
Participation of a school in the Project is FREE.
Complete the Project and get your Medal
When you have finished the booklet, hand it back to your teacher. You have until September 30th to fill your sticker booklet. The school will then collect them in and send them back to us. We will send you the The Home Walk Project’s Medal of Achievement if you complete the project. Even if you haven’t fully completed the project by September the 30th you will still get our Medal of Participation if you hand your booklet in.
You MUST complete all sections of the Questionnaire on page 14 to receive your medal.
