The event usually runs for 1 – 2 hours on any day and time in October, as selected by your school. Students from across the school walk or move along a predetermined route in pairs or small groups.
At checkpoints along the walk, students are given new conversation cards to discuss as they walk to the next point with a new peer or group of peers. The aim is to help students create new connections, and to develop their social skills and confidence.
Try to involve your whole school, taking this opportunity to build connections across all years and stages. However, you can also run your event with just one class or year or stage if that works for your school.
This is a great opportunity for students to move their bodies, but also to engage in discussions and build connections with their fellow students.
