THE Vere Foster National School in Tallanstown is working hard to achieve its fourth green school flag for travel.

The travel flag programme encourages children to walk to school on Wednesdays: Wow-walk on Wednesday.

They had their first WOW-Day this month.

The children walked to school with their parents or parked their cars in local car parks and walked from there.

It was a huge success. Ms Susan Dooley from An Taisce came to the school for the day and covered various topics with the children based on how they travel to school.
