On the 3rd June we celebrate International World Bicycle Day, a day that recognises the uniqueness, longevity and versatility of the bicycle as a simple, affordable, reliable, clean and environmentally fit sustainable means of transport.

John Curtin were able to combine their 2021 Your Move Grant with this United Nations Day to organise a whole school event that promoted active transport. We were thankful to have the expertise of bike mechanic Chris from People on Bicycles on site servicing 20 of our student's bicycles. Year 10 student Sophie was so impressed with how her smoothly her bike was running after the service, she noted 'I will be out and about all weekend on my updated treadly for sure this long weekend.'

As well as the bike repair station, the students participated in a bike riding kahoot. Ms Cooper made quite the impact wearing her triathlon competition threads complete with flashing neon safety gear to maths class.

Place value had never been so exciting..

That is great that you managed to link in your Bike Checks with the World Bike Day event - but what exactly is a bike riding kahoot 😊? I can see why the subsequent maths lesson might have been a bit dazzling 🤣. You have earned 40 points for your event, 40 points for sharing how you used your 2021 Connecting Schools grant and 10 points for your engaging story. Enjoy the weekend 😎!

Kahoots are a great fun, they are an online live quiz. I highly recommend you do one at your next YM presentation, adults will enjoy them just as much. Here is the link to the one I did if you would like to have a go. https://create.kahoot.it/details/56489b2f-196a-47bf-aaab-bd7d4ffb3b03 The suden
