Today was our first Walk or Ride to school event to coincide with 100 days of school and Crazy Hair Day!
Students raised funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Federation with a staggering 65% of our students choosing to ride or walk to school. 20% caught the bus and only 15% arrived by car. Thats 85% using active transport! All students standing represent our active transporters!
This was a stark difference to the previous day last term in which 35% rode or walked to school, 20% caught the bus and 45% arrived by car.
When asked why the students are starting to use their bikes and scooting or walk to school, many students replied proudly that ‘we are a Your Move school, so we choose to walk, ride or catch the bus instead’.
