Space Changer Project

The members of our School Council have ben representing their year group as part of the exciting Space Changer project being run by Sustrans. The project aims to improve the local streets in the area to enable children to walk, cycle and play more.

Guy’s and St Thomas’ Charity have commissioned this project due to childhood obesity being a growing issue across the UK, with 38% of year 6 children in London overweight or obese.

The children were taken on a walkabout of the local area, to express their opinions and ideas for our local community. They were able to identify a range of both positive and negative aspects of the surrounding area and came up with some great ideas on how things could be improved.
