Success - Cycle to School day 2018 (1)

Rick Eikelboom

With a quick peek outside early this morning I was a little optimistic at how the morning would unfold. It was drizzling and the forecast wasn't looking particularly dry for the morning. However plans had been made for our Cycle2School breakfast.

Despite the damp conditions the school was a hive of activity and the older students at the school were cranking up the BBQ's, the frypans were sizzling and the fruit was being cut up.

A steady stream of students and parents began to arrive, many wet right through. Despite this we had an official opening and then it was on! Pancakes, bacon and egg sandwiches, fruit, milk and juice was bought and devoured. As school we decided to combine the Cycle2School day with a fund raising event; money being raised for the Cancer Council of WA.

The important stat for the morning was that out of 203 students at school today, 164 students either cycled, walked of came on their scooters. WOW! The rain didn't deter anyone and the support from parents was equally impressing with about 40 adults cycling of walking to school. A big thank you to the year 10 leaders and the teachers who helped.

It looks like your optimism paid off - 81% participation is fantastic! It is a nice idea to link the day with another worthy cause too - good effort!
