Press release   •   May 11, 2016 10:09 BST

Congratulations to the Moray primary schoolchildren who are stepping out and leading the way in the national Walk of Fame competition which encourages active travel to school.

On Monday - the first day of the competition - Moray had four schools in the top 10 in Scotland, with Kinloss Primary in pole position followed by Greenwards in fourth, Burghead in sixth and Bishopmill in eighth.

Yesterday Moray fared even better, with six schools in the top 10. Portgordon claimed first place, Burghead second, Kinloss fourth, Bishopmill seventh, Lhanbryde eighth and Greenwards ninth.

The competition is for schools using the Travel Tracker programme which allows a daily record to be kept of how children are travelling to school.

Moray Council area stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Forres in the west. The council and its 4,500 employees respond to the needs of 92,500 residents in this beautiful part of Scotland, which nestles between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands.

Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live.

Headquartered in  Elgin, the administrative capital of Moray.
