Students at Perley Elementary School enjoyed a brisk walk around the block before classes began.

In celebration of International Walking Month, Perley’s Parent Advisory Council (PAC) organized a day where students could walk a block around the school and grab a healthy snack before school started.

In collaboration with the education ministry, the government provided pedometers and stickers to promote the event.

Local farmers also pitched in by donating apples, oranges, nectarines, plums and pears for the children to eat as a part of breakfast.

This is the third year that Perley has organized iWalk, to the enjoyment of students.
