Our students this week were fortunate enough to work with Living Streets on an ‘Anti-Idling’ Campaign and also a ‘Walking Map’ to identify locations within our 5-10 minute walking zone where students can be dropped off and walk to school.

Katherine Warington School needs better Air!
The reason why Katherine Warington School needs cleaner air is because students, the workers of tomorrow, need clean lungs to be successful and highly academic.
Do you know what idling is?
Well, the chances are you do this nearly EVERY day! Idling is when your car is still, whilst the engine is on.
This affects the air because the carbon gases that are produced are greenhouse gases, negatively affecting the environment. The gases are trapped in the Ozone layer for so long that it starts to deteriorate, allowing the Sun’s radiation to get through to us, eventually killing us all. Without the Ozone layer, we could end up like Mars, a barren planet with no surface life, and only fossils to show for us. If this future scares you help us in our mission to keep safe.
Experts speculate that climate change will be dangerous to us in the next 50 years! This doesn’t just affect your grandchildren, but you too!
So in the end, we at Katherine Warington School, have one request, just don’t idle!
