Ride2School Term 4 (1)

We held our final Ride2School Day for the year during November. At Loreto we have a regular crowd of walkers and cyclists who commute each week. Our Ride2School Day always incorporates a "walking bus" from a nearby oval. The aim of the walking bus is to provide the opportunity for those students who live further afield to get involved and experience the fun and benefits of walking to school.

Term 4 is a pretty busy time but we had a relatively good turn out. The mild weather at this time of year provided the perfect conditions. The children enjoyed the privilege of being allowed to ride around in the school pavilion (complete with background soundtrack) and practise a few "bike tricks" which are not usually permitted on the school grounds. Smiles all round! 😊

During 2018, our school earned enough points to receive a free Scooter Parking Rack. It has been highly utilised throughout the year and provided a super incentive for the younger children to start good active transport habits at a young age. Thanks very much Your Move. Loreto looks forward to continuing to promote and participate in active transport in 2019.

Thanks for sharing what Loreto has been up to. I like your idea of adding a park and walk activity to your event day, and also bending the normal rules of bike use in the school grounds. Your R2SD event has earnt you 40 activity points, and installing scooter parking another 80 points! You also got another little bonus of 10 points for sharing plenty of details.
