Pupils across the globe use sustainable ways to get to the classroom and October is the month where the efforts of pupils is celebrated.
It gives us a chance to step back in time with a selection of photos of South Tyneside children en route to their own schools.
From Hedworth Lane Primary to Boldon School and Albert Elliott Primary to Laygate School, there are walk-to-school scenes from them all.
The question is – do you recognise anyone in the photos? Take a look.
