Planning Your Move Bike Rack

Rachael Roberts
Hillcrest Primary School

Student Councillors were provided with a morning to plan Your Move activities in the school, following an agenda item requesting a bike rack that was protected from the rain.

Students worked in small groups to brainstorm ideas and then share them with the group.

One group took on the task of discussing the options for a location in the school to place a bike rack where it would be protected from the weather. This involved:

* Meeting with the School Handyman/Gardener;

* Measuring up the different locations;

*Identifying the pros and cons of their chosen location;

* Drafting the plan to present to the School Principal for discussion.

Students come up with an idea to offer a new service for students with their bike rack. They have thought of offering bike locks that can be borrowed from the school for the day - a lock library - as bikes and scooters have been stolen from school grounds. This initiative will now be investigated.

Some good thinking going on here, HPS. What a novel idea about a bike lock library! Who will be the librairians? Look forward to seeing how all these great ideas progress.

What a great initiative with some innovative ideas and planning by the students (love the profile view mockup!). Did you know that we have lockable scooter racks on the Rewards Shop as both a shop item and as a Connecting School Grant?
