Active Travel Week - Fun days planned.

Rick Eikelboom
John Calvin School - Albany

As the school year comes to an end and the weather warms up, we thought it would be a good idea to have a Active Travel Week. The year 6 class had just completed a Digital Technology project where they collected data, represented it and interpreted it, informing them of choices students make in a range of different topics

To consolidate the activity, we decided to promote active travel and at the end of the week we will conduct another survey, our end of year 'Hands up Survey'. The year six class will conduct the survey and compare the results to those earlier in the year.

In addition we decided to have some additional funb, so we have promoted Friday as 'Dress up your bike day.' an advertisement was made and published in the weekly newsletter, and promoted at the school assembly on Monday morning. There is a lot of excitement and we look forward to Friday. There will be prises awarded, prizes obtained from the 'Bike Promotion Package' we received from YOUR MOVE, and additional gifts we ought with the points we accrued during the year.

Thanks for the story Rick! What a great way to finish the year. I've linked this story to the 'Run a Special Event at Your School - Term 4' which I think aligns better than your original activity. This has resulted in a points reduction, however I gave you 10 bonus points for putting so much into the Active Travel Week. By posting further stories about Dress Up Your Bike Day tomorrow and the Year 6 data analysis you will be able to earn even more!
