WOW! what an event we had last Friday for Dress Up Your Bike Day. I think it was our most creative year yet!. We started our morning with the Your Move student team arriving to school early to take their battle stations as students started to arrive. We had students handing out stickers, helping people lock up their bikes and moving their bikes to their designated areas. After the siren went Mr Mitchell our principal start the judging of the Best Dads Bikes. We had only 4 entries and because they showed support they were all awarded a Your Move prize. Once our mornings were on the way as we also celebrated Harmony Day on the same day our student team conducted a Hands Up Survey. The results are in and we had a 48% increase of students choosing to ride their bikes/ scooters to school. During lunch time Mrs Ham then head to the bike racks to commence her judging with many onlookers hoping their bikes would be selected for a prize. There were so many unique and different bikes this year, making it very hard to choose a winner. Some of the entries we had included Star Wars characters, unicorns, dinosaurs, angelfish and some were even themed to harmony day by decorating their bikes with elected countries. After lunch we head to the undercover are for an afternoon Harmony Day performance and then Mrs Ham addressed the assembly with the overall Dress Up Your Bike Day winners for 2019. The winners were k- pp Lucas with a dinosaur entry, year 1-2 Eriin with the most incredible angelfish entry, yr3-4 Rupert with a dinosaur entry and yr 5-6 Tane with a Star Wars entry. Each winner received a Your Move backpacked filled with Your Move goodies which was purchased from the Your Move rewards store. Today we also shared the news and the data collected with our community on our school Facebook page.

What a day, Lakelands! I love the harmony theme bike. And what a great result - bike racks full of bikes and colour; a 48% increase in cycling; and 100s of smiles no doubt! You have earned 40 points for your R2SD event, 20 for having a Dress Up Your Bike comp, 10 for the details of the day and another 10 for analysing the results of the day.
