Park and Stride – Keeping You Healthy Too!

Thank you to all of those children and parents who joined Liza Brolly (East Hants District Council), Angela Forsyth (Hampshire County Council) and Mr Markham to walk the 0.6 miles from the Festival Hall car park to school last Wednesday.

As well as helping with traffic congestion around the school, it keeps you fit too! We walked the 0.6 miles in 12 minutes. Using a heart rate monitor we could check that we burned 40 calories and took our average heart rates from 60beats per minute (bpm) at rest to 100 bpm during the walk.

We are currently exploring whether or not the times can be extended to allow for drop off to the infants if you have a child at both Herne and the infant school.

If this is something you would like to take part in, please pick up your FREE permit from the school office.  Further information can be found on the leaflet below:
