Coolbinia's Ride to School Day was an over-riding success! Our cycling statistics increased by 31% compared to the start of the year.
Other survey statistics include: 22% decrease in driving, 36% increase in walking and a mighty 112% increase in the use of public transport, compared to the start of the year survey. The Your Move team thought these improvements were a result of their publicity campaign. They created posters, made PA announcements and parent newsletter items about the Ride to School Day.
When children arrived at school on the Ride to School Day they were given stickers, eco-tokens and other give-aways, plus a raffle ticket. Twenty winning raffle tickets were drawn by the YM team and winners collected their prizes at recess.
To conclude the day, students and parents were thanked for their participation and support for health and environmental benefits.
