Schools Clean Air Day Competition 22nd May – 23rd June 2023

The My Journey Wokingham Team as supporting this year national Clean Air Day on Thursday 15 June.

Breathing in polluted air means you are more likely to develop mental health and brain conditions. Children are more vulnerable to breathing in polluted air than adults because their airways are smaller and still developing. They also breathe more rapidly than adults, meaning they take in more polluted air.

What you need to do

To help raise awareness about the problems of air pollution and promote the benefits of using active travel to get to and from school we are launching a Clean Air Day poster competition which is open to all primary school aged pupils. Please see the flyer and poster template attached.

We’d love you to ask your pupils create a picture using the colouring template provided to show how walking, scooting or cycling to school makes you feel, please include how you get to and from school.

Please use the template provided for your postersClean-Air-Day-Wokingham-Brain Template.pdf

All entries must be A3 and have name of pupil, year group and name of school.

The closing date for entries is Friday 23rd June.


I am excited to say that the top prize is a year’s access to air quality monitoring data for an individual school, using the Earthsense Virtual Zephyr© air quality model via the MyAir platform to investigate air pollution sources around your school site. There will also be My Journey goody bags for the runners up.

I look forward to seeing all your entries please email them to [email protected]

Dear Parents & Carers,

A massive thank you for the generous donations to the Wokingham Food Bank last week. There will be a Non-Uniform day on Friday the 1st of December in return for donations of a beverage bottle from Junior children (e.g. wine, beer, fizzy drinks etc. but not fresh items please) and sealed confectionery/chocolate from Infant children.  The bottle tombola will be held On Sunday the 10th of December at the PTA Jingle Bell Jog and Festive Fair.
