On Friday, the 13th of March, Creaney PS celebrated the Freaky Friday National Ride2School Day as our launch for the Your Move initiative. We had a lot of fun dressing up our bikes and scooters as we rode to school, rather than driving.
In preparation for our first event, I, the Phys. Ed. teacher, advertised National Ride2School at our mini-assembly that we call ‘Muster’. I also advertised it in our school newsletter and on our ClassDojo page as a way to communicate to our school’s families. I also had a meeting with the newly elected Faction Captains a few days prior to ensure they arrive to school at 8am on the day, hand out one raffle ticket per student who participated as they come through the gates, and to ensure students knew where to put their raffle ticket to enter the draw to win some prizes. Our Faction Captains also took the time and did a fantastic job ensuring students safely got their bikes at the end of the day.
There were 145 entries in our raffle draw, which meant there was a 418% increase of our students riding to school than when we did our first Hands Up Survey. WOW! Safe to say our first Your Move event, National Ride2School Day was a big success.
Enjoy some photos below of the ‘freaky’ decorations, our captains handing out tickets and the big smiling faces of those who chose a healthier lifestyle.
