Walk & Roll to School Week

Students ready to scoot to school.

Walk & Roll to School Week, which happens every year in October, is a chance for all Surrey elementary schools to celebrate students and their families for walking, cycling, and scootering to school. In 2019, Walk & Roll to School took place from October 7-11.

Registration Details

Use the Walk & Roll Application Form to register your school at least a week before the event starts (Deadline: September 30, 2019). We’ll send you a starter kit (including an activity guide, recording posters, stickers, reflectors, safety materials, and banner) to help you plan your school’s Walk & Roll to School Week activities.

During Walk & Roll, use the classroom recording posters to track your school’s active trips to school. Remember to take photographs of your students walking and rolling!

After Walk & Roll, watch for an email to submit your school’s participation results. We’ll pull all of the numbers and stories together and announce the winners in November!

Prizes

Registered schools are eligible to win fantastic prizes, including the top prize: The Mayor’s Golden Shoe trophy, $500, and a fun prize pack (bike locks, bike bells, pedometers, and umbrellas). Four runners-up will also receive a fun prize pack.

Why Walk or Roll?

Walking and cycling is the perfect way for kids to be active, help the environment and have a lot of fun on the way to and from school. In 2017, the City spent $4.5 million on walking and cycling infrastructure around schools.

Walking and cycling to school builds regular physical activity into the daily routine, helps to decrease traffic congestion around schools, increases concentration and learning outcomes at school, builds community and provides a strong foundation for lifelong walking, cycling and transit transportation lifestyles.
