The Go Parks: Active Schools Challenge has been developed to encourage children to keep active in local parks with parents/support bubbles during lockdown (whilst still following social distancing and travel rules). Schools will compete against each other from 1st – 28th February and the most active schools over the month will be rewarded! By scanning a QR code on a walk, run, scoot or cycle in a participating park, children can earn points for their school with each visit.
To take part you will need to look out for the QR code which will be located on a banner or on a poster in local parks. You will then need to:
- Scan the QR code.
- Open the link to complete the entry.
- Choose our school as the one you would like to support.
Other family members can also enter and support our school. Anyone entering, must be 18 years or older – this parent, guardian or bubble member will then pledge their points to our school. Entries are unlimited for the duration of the challenge - but you can only enter once a day. The QR codes are located in a mixture of 33 local parks and green spaces around the city. The organisers are encouraging families to stay local and not to make unnecessary travel, but to incorporate this challenge into daily exercise.
