Primary pupils walk (or STOMP) their way to better health

27 Apr 2017

Children from King's Cross primary school took to the stage and got active with the cast of the globally-renowned production STOMP, as part of a Camden Council campaign to boost walking in the borough.

The 'Camden Walking' campaign aims to increase the number of local residents who take part in daily brisk walking* in the borough.

An element of the wider campaign is the promotion of the Daily Mile – a project run in many of Camden’s schools, including Argyle Primary, which sees every child in the school spending 15 minutes a day running, jogging or walking on top of their regular PE lessons.

On Thursday (27 April), 15 children from Argyle Primary School walked their 'daily mile' from the school - in Tonbridge Street, King's Cross - to the Ambassadors Theatre, in the West End, before taking to the stage for rhythmic brushing and stomping exercises and a photo opportunity with cast members from STOMP.

The hit show, which last year celebrated its 25th anniversity, uses familiar objects to create a rhythmic universe exploding with energy, where anything can be turned into a beat, and anybody can pound a pattern and get active.
