WELCOME TO OUR TRAVEL GROUP PAGE
We, at Herne, are committed to exploring ways to reduce the traffic on our neighbouring roads, promote fun and healthy ways to travel to school and educate our students on how to stay safe on our roads. Throughout the academic year, we participate in several activities including Walk to School Week, Bikeability, Scooter Challenge, National Bike Week and many more...

Public Health England launch new fitness app (Active 10)
Public Health England has
launched a new fitness app that tracks your steps and even how fast you are walking. It is available to download for both IOS and Android devices.
Taken from the Public Health England Website:
'A brisk 10 minute walk every day can make a difference to your health. Each 10 minute burst of exercise is known as an “Active 10”.
Brisk walking is simply walking faster than usual, at a pace that gets your heart pumping. Start with a 10 minute brisk walk a day and then see if you can gradually build up to more.
It’s the easy way to improve your health and wellbeing. No gym memberships, no Lycra. Just 10 minutes and you!'
