The scheme is designed to encourage children to walk to school on a more regular basis. Badges and certificates will be available to earn as the weeks progress and who doesn't like badges and certificates?
In addition, with more children walking, fitness levels will rise. And with less cars on the roads, the environment will not be so horribly polluted. It's a win win situation, and did I mention there were badges?!

In the mean time, have a look at some photos of the introductory assembly and the first morning of the scheme:
