MIJAS Town Hall is putting its young people to work and getting its children healthy with a new scheme to encourage walking to school.
Each school in the Step by Step program will have specific routes with stops where children can join their monitored walking group.
Thanks to the [email protected] job creation program 22 young monitors were recruited and trained to escort pupils until the end of April when their contracts run out.
“The children who participate in this programme will be picked up each morning at the established stop nearest their home and will be led to the door of the school,” said education councillor Lourdes Burgos.
Children will wear lanyards carrying their school’s name, route number and an identification number as they keep fit while reducing traffic and pollution.
