Pupils at Heathcote Primary School in Warwick recently received a donation of reflective bag tags from leading developer David Wilson Homes to help them shine bright whilst on their way to and from school for Walk to School Month in October.
The five star homebuilder gave the school reflective tags for its pupils to wear whilst walking to and from school, ensuring they can be easily seen on the roads as the darker nights draw in.
Walk to School Month runs for the duration of October each year and encourages pupils to celebrate the journey to school on foot.
Kim Abernethy, Head of School at Heathcote Primary School, said: “Our children were thrilled to receive their high-vis bag tags. They understand the importance of keeping themselves safe and were keen to wear them whilst walking home. Thanks to David Wilson Homes for providing them.”
Heathcote Primary School is located near the homebuilder’s Beaumont at Warwick Gates development on Vickers Way, and the donation of hi-vis bag tags is another part of David Wilson Homes’ outreach to the local community.
In what’s been a challenging time for schools across the country as a result of the pandemic, the leading developer is as committed as ever to providing support during Walk to School Month and beyond.
Dominic Harman, Managing Director at David Wilson Homes Mercia, said: “We want to ensure the pupils in the local communities remain visible now the darker nights are here, and our donation has hopefully still encouraged them to safely practice Walk to School Month.
“This is a campaign we actively support each year as we endeavour to help local school children in their efforts to commute on foot, and the tags have proven to be both effective and practical.
“As a result of the COVID-19 crisis, it’s even more important for us to support the local schools in and around the communities we build, so we’re thrilled to have had the chance to support Heathcote Primary School during Walk to School Month.”
David Wilson Homes’ hi-vis bag tags have been particularly useful during Walk to School Month, whilst being certain to benefit the pupils in their future journeys to school throughout the winter months.
