SAM ROWLANDS, Member of the Welsh Parliament for North Wales, has praised a Connah’s Quay school for receiving a gold award for its active travel initiatives.

Mr Rowlands said: “I am a great supporter of the Active Journeys programme in Wales, which helps children across the country to safely, easily and confidently travel to school by foot, bike and scooter. Safe active travel is also so important for our physical health and wellbeing.

“I was delighted to go along to Ysgol Bryn Deva to personally congratulate staff and pupils who have all worked so hard to gain this accolade.

“Well done to everyone for gaining the gold award.

Sustrans Active Journeys programme, which is funded by the Welsh Government, works with schools across Wales to create a culture that makes it easier for children to walk, wheel, scoot, or cycle.

They support school champions and collaborate with local authority contacts to help improve routes and develop whole-school approaches to active travel.

A range of engaging activities helps to build the confidence, enthusiasm and skills needed to help form new active travel habits.

These activities and lessons support schools’ efforts in achieving Eco-Schools and Healthy Schools awards, working towards the Sustrans Active Travel School Award which recognises excellence in sustainable travel.
