CHILDREN in Kibworth got on board with an initiative to walk to school designed to encourage kids to keep fit.

Children from Kibworth Primary School were encouraged to walk to school by developer David Wilson Homes, and were assisted by the company, who donated high visibility vests and wristbands.

David Wilson Homes East Midlands managing director John Reddington said: “David Wilson Homes is supporting the campaign for the third year running.

“By offering pupils at Kibworth Primary School a helping hand and donating 50 high-visibility vests to the school and high-visibility wristbands to each pupil, they will be encouraged to walk to school and can stay safe as winter approaches and the dark nights draw in.”

Kibworth Primary School headteacher Paul Stone said: “We believe walking to school is important and try to encourage as many of our pupils as possible to walk to school in a safe and sensible fashion.

“It is great to see a developer support such a valuable initiative and we really appreciate the donation from David Wilson Homes.

“Initiatives like this help to get the children excited about walking to school.

“By increasing physical activity every day, not only is it benefitting the pupils health, the pupils have the opportunity to burn off some energy before the school day begins and we can also reduce congestion outside the school gates.”
