Hundreds of Deniliquin primary school students participated in national Walk Safely to School Day on Friday.
St Michael’s School students Niccola Stanworth, Lillianne Jansen and Jareida Williams (pictured) all enjoyed walking to school and contributed to the school’s biggest participation to date.
Principal Bernadette Murphy said 98 per cent of her students walked to school, and those who didn’t had valid reasons, including being on crutches.
‘‘We’ve been talking about it for the last few weeks,’’ Mrs Murphy said.
‘‘The response was absolutely fantastic — it’s our biggest year yet.
‘‘We always participate because it’s important to encourage physical activity.’’
