Earlier in the year students at Mosman Park PS eagerly participated in a Ride 2 School day. Supported by the P&C and by school staff, students and parents were encouraged to ditch the car and instead make their way to school by bike or scooter. Almost half of the school's 400 students rode their bikes or scooters and were welcomed with fresh fruit donated by the local Coles, as well as 'valet' bike parking organised by the older students.
The students were asked to identify hazards on their way to school and this information was shared with the local council. In order to make the journey safer the School has applied for a Children's Crossing on one of the busiest streets. We expect that to be installed early next year. This will make parents and students feel more confident about riding their bikes.
The Year 6 school leaders have also proposed to fund-raise, in partnership with the P&C, to install safe storage areas and bike racks around the school.
