Taking part in the walk on June 20th, the children aged eighteen months to 10 years, walked a total of 10,000 steps towards the 40,000 km circumference of the world.
Director & Montessori teacher Theresa Ellerby said “Children from both nursery and school came together to celebrate Montessori education and raise money for charity. We are very pleased to be supporting the Diana, Princess of Wales Pink Rose Appeal.
Since 1907, Montessori education has developed millions of children around the world on their journey to adulthood. Maria Montessori began her work in a disadvantaged area of Rome and its clear the philosophy is still working today!
