Despite strong winds and heavy rains around 40 pupils from Ysgol Bro Dewi in St David's stepped out to school last week.
The youngsters, who were joined by staff, parents and grandparents, put their best feet forward for a Walk to School Day.
Organised by the primary school and Pembrokeshire County Council, the walk was part of an initiative looking at ways of reducing car travel within the city.
County Councillor John George, St David's Mayor Chris Taylor and other members of the City Council, along with the police, added their support to the event walking with the pupils from Heol Dewi and Bryn Teg to the school in Nun Street.
The primary school - along with the secondary school Ysgol Dewi Sant, the local community and the County Council - is in the process of preparing a Safe Routes in the Community bid to the Welsh Government.
"It was very encouraging to see so many children walking in such inclement weather," said Councillor George.
"Any moves to encourage people to walk or cycle more in their communities - in particular children travelling to and from school - are to be welcomed," he said
"As well as improving people's health, such moves also benefit the environment and reduce traffic congestion."
Headteacher Raymond Griffiths said: "We had a great turnout on such a wet day. It shows that we don't need our cars as much as we think."
