Step up to wellbeing

The Student Achievement team invite you to join us for a walk.

It has been proven that being active could lead to a better quality of life. People are seen to experience benefits in the following areas:

  • Improved long term educational attainment.
  • Increased energy levels.
  • Reduced levels of illness.
  • Improved mental health.
  • Reduced risk of strokes and heart disease.

Some good information to read on the importance of staying active can be found on the Government Health Matters website. Going for a walk at lunchtime is free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, become healthier and get your step count up.

We will be holding our walks on Thursdays at 1pm, meeting outside the Mountbatten Library. The first session on Thursday 5 July will involve an orienteering quiz, which will be repeated periodically.

Each week our steps will count towards a group goal, where we will collectively meet the challenge of walking to one of the following cities, over a six week block:
