Gold at Inglewood Primary School.

Last year we were very fortunate to have an excellent group of parents, staff and students who got behind the ‘Your Move’ program. This meant that we became eligible to receive a Connecting Schools grant worth up to $2400. By the end of the year we had 45% of our students using active transport where the national average was 34%.

With the grant money, the school installed 2 new scooter racks and 1 bike rack, all of which was being well used within the first day of installation. A big thank you to “Your Move". This week the students enjoyed a scooter lunchtime session, the scooter racks were a great success for storing the extra scooters at school. Stay tuned for photos and the story behind the scooter day.

Hi Gill - it sounds like your choice of scooter (and bike) parking was a wise decision! I'm looking forward to seeing the photos of the new parking and your scooter day event. You have earned 40 points for unlocking your Connecting Schools grant, plus another 25 points for your scooter lunchtime event (you'll get more points for that too when you post photos and further details).
